Photographer Takashi Homma began producing a series of books as an homage to Edward Ruscha in 2014, with each publication taking a new form through its changing subject matter. While the technique is an imitation of Ruscha’s 1964 book ‘Various Small Fires’, this fifth instalment in the series attempts its own adaption of the original by focusing on a theme not examined by Ruscha. Thus we are presented with all manner of hoses, but mostly garden hoses, looping and snaking randomly as they were abandoned after the last use. Also, as the title suggests, one of the hoses is actually a snake.
