Everything In Its Right Place

After meeting her, I continued to take pictures of her every day. The brilliance of my life was recorded more vividly in the photos than in my memories. The moment the shutter was released, it was as if telepathy was taking place. We were sharing our senses. However, no matter how much we shared our feelings, the slightest discrepancy piled up and gradually I was trapped on my own. Then I said goodbye. Was it the right thing to do? I don't know. The only thing I could think of was that I was close to giving up, that it was all for the best, that everything was settled in the right place. That's what I decided to think. These photos are neither remembrance nor recollection, but pale, gentle photos of a moment of forgiveness.

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
