Chino Otsuka

Successful self-portraits that do not merely depict a pictorial representation of the artist are few and far apart. Chino Otsuka’s autobiographical series takes place in an abandoned flat in a Tokyo housing estate. The images evoke a sense of displacement, the diptychs further accentuate the emptiness between photographer and environment.

Chino’s other series, Imagine Finding Me, reveals the aching need for some to revisit the past and perhaps whisper something into our younger selves.
