Kippo (Yoshinori) Mizutani’s “Colors”

August 19, 2014

In his photographic series “Colors”, Kippo Mizutani forces the images to speak for themselves. Through the use of bold colors, abstracted surfaces, and conceptual portraits, the Japanese artist creates a visual narrative that differs from viewer to viewer. "Sometimes photography without context is enough. Sometimes the lack of context gives depth to the picture, a resonance, gives us space to examine the banality of the subject and the beauty inherent in it,” explains Mizutani.\
