Just the way you are
I have a lot of pictures of me in my natural state. That's because most of my family, loved ones, and friends like to take pictures. However, I do not have any pictures of them. Even if I remembered being with them, I could not recall what they looked like. This piece focuses on the person taking the picture. I want to preserve their natural appearance through photography, just as I have been able to recall many happy memories.
He is an artist who works with a wide ranging genres including photography, illustration, lyrics, and music composition, based on the theme "Gently, Coolly, Heart Rock". Born in Tome, Miyagi.
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.
