Originally imported as pets in the 1970s, parrots now swoop through Tokyo, dotting the sky, resting on power lines, and creating a colorful display that Yoshinori Mizutani has captured with his photographs. While he's best known for these surreal pictures of chartreuse birds, his latest series, Rain, explores how a more natural phenomenon can transform the city's landscape.

The series will be presented as part of Mizutani's solo show at London's Webber Gallery Space, opening on May 20.
