Chino Otsuka uses photography and video to explore the fluid relationship between the memory, time and photography. At age 10 she moved from Japan to the United Kingdom to attend school. Her experience of becoming familiar with a new place, a different language and new customs while she was developing her adolescent identity has profoundly shaped her work in photography, video and writing. Her series Imagine Finding Me consists of double self-portraits, with images of her present self beside her past self in various places she has visited. As Otsuka says: “The digital process becomes a tool, almost like a time machine, as I’m embarking on the journey to where I once belonged and at the same time becoming a tourist in my own history.” - via AGO
I am unexpectedly weepy looking at this.
gosh that’s… moving in a really gentle kind of “mother your inner child” way…
It’s so good that I ALMOST SCROLLED PAST IT because I assumed they were just regular pictures
This is, by far, the best short film I’ve seen in my life. Every time I watch this it divulges even more meaning.
Will always fucking reblog. I mean just look at the animation to begin with it is stunning. Not to mention the plot is fabulous and the voice acting is spot on. Every time I watch this I get chills down my spine. its so eerie what we can accomplish now days.
WHY HAS THIS NOT BEEN PRODUCED INTO A 2 HOUR MOVIE OH MY GOD
That was AMAZING. I even almost cried. It was beautiful.
