Yoshinori Mizutani: Colors
Library Shelf Location 18.MIZU
Publication Date 2014

According to Ivan Vartanian, Tokyo-based photographer Yoshinori Mizutani “is part of the Tumblr generation of photographers”. Using social media, his approach to photography involves regularly updating his photo stream, following other users, and reposting images. In this virtual deluge of images, appearance takes precedence, which Mizutani reflects in his work: the vertical format signals the display of a hand-held device, artificial light sources (both ambient and flash), the inaccessibility of a purely natural world. His keen eye for colour and appreciation for detail in the mundane urban surroundings leads to a disconcerting yet beautiful expression of Japanese aesthetics.
