Time Traveling Photographer Chino Otsuka

Time Traveling Photographer Chino Otsuka

Japanese visual artist  Chino Otsuka, living in London, UK, travels in time as she combines her childhood photos with present images of herself. Otsuka’s series “Imagine Finding Me” combines digital compositions from various countries during different years of artist’s life. The images are manipulated in a way the viewer can really believe they were not retouched.

 “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.

How would it be to travel in time and meet your own self in the past?
