Christophe Guye Galerie presents Yoshinori Mizutani’s showroom exhibition 'Birds' at the gallery. Young Japanese photographer Yoshinori Mizutani (*1987) has turned Tokyo’s sky into the canvas of his colourful universe. Turning his lens skywards, he captures parakeets that colonize electrical cables and populate en masse the trees of the megalopolis. The tender, pure blue of the morning skies gives away to the cyan and deep purple produced by the city’s artificial and neon lights. Drawing deeply on Japanese pictorial tradition, Mizutani plays with power and contrast using vibrant and muted colours.
