"...The project is the result of the cooperation between Andrea Botto and Francesco Zanot, respectively director and curator of the annual Rapallo Fotografia festival, who entrusted the Japanese photographer to work around the theme of memory and personal archives in Rapallo and in the Italian region of Liguria. During his stay in the area, fascinated by the pictures stored in the archives of Genoa and Rapallo, Homma explored the need to preserve personal and intimate memories, especially after a loss. Thus he shot eleven portraits of widowed women - witnesses for their dead partners’ memories - and captured a glimpse of the places where the widows live. This work being the subject of the exhibition at Castello di Rapallo. He also re-photographed the snapshots of the widows’ family albums, exclusively published in the book which represents therefore an integral part of the project and the exhibition..."
