Photography:Yoshinori Mizutani


“When I saw the hordes of parrots of several hundred birds, I was very scared, it was like, I had fallen into the movie “bird” directed by Hitchcock.

Birds in this photo were brought to Japan as pets from the tropics in 70’s, and went feral; settling in Tokyo. Parrots should not be in Tokyo.

I was shocked by this strange spectacle, felt uncomfortable and continued taking photographs.”

I was a little surprised by this quote from Yoshinori Misutani’s website but then I thought while we are quite immune to the generally neutral robins, sparrows, and everyone’s favorite, the pigeon around us everyday how would we feel if they were replaced by the vibrantly colored parrot? I think we might be a little freaked out as well. pb
