At some point, every person looks at who they are and wonders how they came to be. In her “Imagine Finding Me” collection, visual artist Chino Otsuka shows us both who she is and how she became this woman through a series of images linking the past and the present.
Through seamless integration of her present self in photos from her younger days, Chino Otsuka takes us on a journey where she plays the roles of participant and observer. In this collection, she examines the relationship between photos, memories, and emotions and reflects on how all these different times and experiences shaped her into the person she is now. As a viewer of her collection, one can’t help but reflect on similar instances in our own lives, along with thoughts about what might have been if other situations occurred or other choices were made. So if you’re open to a journey of time travel, both through someone else and for yourself, take a look at Chino Otsuka’s “Imagine Finding Me” series.
