A figure in young Japanese photography, Yoshinori Mizutani revisits the urban space of his city, Tokyo. Deeply imbued with the Japanese pictorial tradition, the photographer explores daily Tokyo life and captures scenes at the edge of the fantastic. His framing and bright colors give his images a certain strangeness. Shapes, textures, colored nuances, depth of field create a visual vocabulary that is both poetic and pop. Visions of dreams or nightmares, the birds of Yoshinori Mizutani saturate the city world with their presence and restore its mystery to it.
This work is part of the Birds collection which celebrates, through the eyes of various artists, their immense presence in a world where they are today weakened. Ornithologist Guilhem Lesaffre offers a unique essay to accompany each set of photographs. For those of Yoshinori Mizutani, it highlights the gregarious behavior of birds. Previous titles in the collection include: Pentti Sammallahti, Bernard Plossu and Terri Weifenbach.
