SHORT LIST

Statement

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.

Jury selection

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.

* This work was included in a curated collection of works selected by the judge Tim Barber from a number of submitted works. See the collection
