‘The themes of my work are the everyday and the familiar. What is familiar to me, however, could be new to the viewer. It could also be revelatory or something previously overlooked. It is the viewers’ varied responses to and interpretations of images, which makes photography interesting.’ – Yoshinori Mizutani
Yoshinori Mizutani’s photographs demonstrate an innate understanding of how forms, colours, textures and depth translate to the pictorial plane. The artist works with a visual vocabulary that has been well established by the work of many photographers active today. Mizutani’s work serves as a good gauge of the visual tropes and photographic styles that are prevalent among young photographers in Tokyo.
