Imagine Finding Me
1982 and 2005, Paris, France
Double self-portraits.

I've often wondered what it would be like to be in the presence of my 4 year old self, or what would I say to my 16 year old self? I recently came across Chino Otsuka's work (c/o Tristan Hutchinson's blog) and her series entitled "Imagine Finding Me" is a fascinating exercise on nostalgia. The series has recently been published, and I can't wait to receive my copy.
