  • Catalogue Essay

    Using strobe light and long exposure, Yoshinori Mizutani photographed the pine trees in his neighbourhood at midnight, the trees barely visible in the darkness. In this composition, the space is shared equally by the rich golden sky and the pine trees, reminiscent of the ink and gold paintings of the Kano School, which dominated Japanese art from the late 15th century to the mid-19th century. Harking back to traditional Japanese art, Mizutani explores the relationship between negative and positive spaces. Mizutani, in 2014, was selected for Foam Talent (Amsterdam), LensCulture Emerging Talents (Paris) and Young Portfolio, Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts (Japan).
