Yoshinori Mizutani Removes The Gloom Of A Stormy Day

Updated: 19 December 2016
In London, we are all too familiar with the greyness and gloominess associated with rain. However, acclaimed Japanese photographer Yoshinori Mizutani creates something that is strangely beautiful out of such wet sodden moments in his stunning monochromatic series, Rain.

Yoshinori Mizutani‘s photographic series, Rain, presents various pedestrian crossings throughout Shibuya and Asakusa in Tokyo from a high vantage point on a gloomy day. There is such a striking visual aesthetic to the photographs, with their strong composition and perspective for which the young Mizutani has become well known. As citizens and traffic traverse the pedestrian crossing with their umbrellas, Mizutani noted that they look ‘like flowers that would bloom through the city’ as the water touches the ground.
