About Des Oiseaux
Here, Yoshinori Mizutani revisits the urban space of his city, Tokyo, as a figure of the young Japanese photography scene. The photographer explores Tokyo’s daily life and captures scenes that verge on the fantastic. His work is steeped in Japanese pictorial tradition and so the framings and bright colours of his images confer an element of otherness. Also, the forms, textures, colourful hues, and depth of field develop a visual vocabulary which pops and is poetic. So, as visions from dreams or nightmares, the presence of Mizutani’s birds saturate the world of the city and restore its mystery.
As a result, this publication is part of the Des Oiseaux (On birds) collection that celebrates, through the vision of different artists, their immense presence in a world where they are now vulnerable. Accompanying these photographs, the ornithologist Guilhem Lesaffre writes a special essay. For this title, he sheds light on the social instincts of birds.
