Artist Imagines Meeting Her Young Self In This Poignant Photo Series



Chino Otsuka, a photographer and visual artist based in London, explores the impermanence of time and memory in a poignant photo series titled “Imagine Finding Me”.

The artist relocated to London from Tokyo when she was 10 years old, and her memories of her experiences gave her the idea of “mental time travel” and “becoming a tourist of your own history” that inspires her art.

Her photo series features images of her present self beside her past self in various places she has visited. These double-portraits provoke questions like “What if you bump into yourself somewhere on the stairs?”

“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,” says Otsuka of her project.
