A note about my brother
About seven years have passed since then. I had just started taking pictures, and I was always photographing my brother as if I was motivated by something. My brother and I both became adults, and our looks and thoughts changed. Before I knew it, I had stopped taking my brother. Some people regretted it, but it seemed to be inevitable. The brother I had back then would always remain here. By doing so, I think I have accomplished one of my tasks.
In 2017, she graduated from the Photo Fieldwork Seminar at the College of Photography and Art of Japan. She opened Koma gallery in Ebisu, Tokyo in 2021.
Judged by Tim Barber:
Inspired by the Grand Prix, Takahashi Miki’s work, I thought it would be fun and interesting to make a compilation of the widely diverse and eclectic work submitted for this contest. When edited and organized, the “memory” submissions, sent in from dozens of artists, become a kind of collective-memory-collage, a dream sequence of disparate clues from a kaleidoscopic narrative.
