Une photographe s’incruste dans ses photos d’enfance

J’aime beaucoup cette démarche qui consiste à montrer en une photo le temps qui passe, l’évolution de son physique, des modes, des couleurs. On connait tous maintenant le travail de la photographe Irina Werning célèbre pour ces clichés Back to the futur. Voici le travail similaire en plus poétique de Chino Otsuka qui elle s’incruste dans ses photos d’enfance des années 80. Ne cherchant pas à se déguiser avec la même tenue de sa photo d’époque, elle pose simplement non loin de l’enfant qu’elle était. L’enfant et l’adulte posent côte à côte, le passé et le présent se rencontrent. Fin 2013, le travail de Chino Otsuka est arrivé en finale du « AGO AIMIA Photography Prize ».
