These pictures. The word "youth" may sound a bit cheesy, but that's what the theme is attached to. The photos were all taken only a few years ago. Apparently, one's emotions change very quickly in youth, and I saw a transparent fragility in myself at that time. Even though I was still a student, I cheekily felt a longing for the innocence of that time. At the same time, I felt a heat in these photos that I don't feel now.
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.
