MEMORIES

SHORT LIST

Statement

window

All of these photos were taken within a short period of one year. Looking at these photos from my current location, I feel nostalgia and different emotions. It's a sensation that vividly brings up my own feelings at the time I took them. However, one of the advantages of photography is that over a long period of time, each photo becomes deeply ingrained in you, not just digested in an instant.

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
