If you’ve watched The Time Traveler’s Wife, this has completely no relation whatsoever. Haha.
Chino Otsuka, photographer, somewhat genius, has discovered the art of time travelling. Not physically, but possibly digitally. “Instead of exploiting a whole in the space-time continuum to time travel, she simply digitally spliced her adult self into old photographs from her childhood.” Results? It looked like the adult version of her met the child version of her.
They say clever, I say, skillful. ForsakenExile commented, “Very nice job indeed. Close attention to detail right down to shadows and noise, DoF… win!”
Otsuka explains, “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.”
“Sometimes she mimics what she did as a kid, other times she’s simply crossing paths with her childhood self and there’s even a few pictures where it looks like she’s taking care of her childhood self. It’s clever photo manipulation but a few of these shots really make it look like she was there the entire time.”
So what do you think? Would you like to travel through time? Hmmm… I wonder if Aylwin can slot me in my old photos, somehow…Tags: childhood chino otsuka highlight photo manipulation photographer time machine time travelling
