Striking Compositions of Commuters in a Rainy Tokyo

I came across this series, Rain, by photographer Yoshinori Mizutani and was immediately struck by the compositions. At a simple black and white crosswalk, Mizutani captures people walking by with their colorful umbrellas and a yellow taxi passing by.

“I always thought of rain as something gloomy and unpleasant,” he states. “One day, however, I stepped out into the city and realized how rain can alter our everyday landscape. Even the most mundane details such as wet ground and rain drops can reveal a whole new world to us if we observe them from a slightly different angle. ‘Rain’ is one of my continuing attempts to present a new perspective and interpretation towards our often overlooked daily phenomenon.”
