The complete edition of Takashi Homma’s acclaimed homage reveals the connection between the graceful and intimate sequence of images depicting the girl – which is in fact not Takashi Homma’s daughter but the daughter of friends of his – and the city of Tokyo.

The girl, captured in various stages of growing up in everyday locations, stares serenely just beyond the camera lens, unselfconscious and generally appearing more interested in the person holding the camera than the device itself: in one photograph, she peers out curiously from the backseat of a car, while in another she points her own tiny pink camera back at the photographer. Homma’s photography is imbued with a warmth and sincerity that belies his total familiarity with the subjects at hand; he documents Tokyo’s urban landscape with the same tenderness he brings to portraying the girl.
