Intruiging photo’s by Chino Otsuka. A Tokyo born photographer, living in Britain since she was 10. In her work she deals with a repeating theme; “What makes a place a home and where does a sense of belonging comes from?”. In a lot of her projects she uses self-portraits to explore the themes of belonging, identity and memory.
These pictures are a great example of this theme she is working on. By placing herself back in a picture that was taken when she was a child. I wonder how she felt when she was back at the place where these pictures were taken. Was there some disappointment or will ‘the journey back’ make the memory stronger. Clever way of using memory as a narritive element to tell her story.
I have a chance to meet,
there is so much I want to ask
and so much I want to tell”
