Chino Otsuka is a Japanese native that moved to the United Kingdom at a young age. This dynamic transition is reflected within a lot of her work, which includes both internationally-renowned art and writing. Otsuka’s impressive portfolio includes Imagine Finding Me, a series of self-portraiture photographs that show her present self next to her younger images as an exploration of memory and time.
“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.” –Otsuka
This theme is extended in Otsuka’s other works, such as the video series Memoriography, the project Photo Album, and earlier worksSummer and TOKYO 4-3-4-506. Check out those works here!
