MEMORIES

SHORT LIST

Statement

Late summer, a summer that ends like fireworks

I captured the memories of a summer with my girlfriend who is no longer with me. I asked her to wear a yukata (summer kimono) as is typical of Japanese summers, and shot it at the seaside in the evening to express the sadness of a summer that would soon pass. It's photographed slightly underexposed with a film camera to emphasize that emotion. I added a touch of sadness with sparklers, fireworks that scatter instantly.

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
