When I first encountered the camera and learned about photography, I really enjoyed taking pictures every day. It was important to me to have my precious memories take shape. However, it was also the photographs that confronted me with the cruelty of photography. It is true that the negatives, data, and photos that are there are the past that will never return, and events in another world that are out of reach. I wondered where the time axis of the moment when I took those happy and lovely photos existed. I thought about photography in the wake of my lost love.

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.
