Rain – Yoshinori Mizutani

Rain is one of the most recent projects by Japanese artist Yoshinori Mizutani, that shows the streets of Tokyo from a totally new point of view.

Characterized by strong contrasts of the colours of the objects in the images, like umbrellas or cars, and the alternation of blacks and white of the zebra crossings, which serve as an extremely geometric and optical background, these pictures aim to inspect the way a simple change in the weather conditions can modify the apprearance of urban landscape. The point of view of the photographer, raised and distant from the subjects, plays a key role in revealing a completely different – and almost fictious – world from what we are used to see everyday.
