Photographer Chino Otsuka inserts an image of herself as an adult into her childhood photographs, creating an instant biographical moment. “Being a tourist of your own history” is her starting point. (Above: Chino Otsuka, 1976 and 2005, Kamakura, Japan)
Her series Imagine Finding Me consists of double self-portraits. She seamlessly places a current image beside her past self in places she has visited. “The digital process becomes a tool, almost like a time machine,” she says. These images are from the Art Gallery of Ontario’s AIMIA Photography Prize, where she was short-listed for the 2013 award. (Above: 1982 and 2005, Paris, France) 1984 and 2005, London, England
