This series of photos that Japanese London-based photographer Chino Otsuka created is so nostalgic and heartwarming, it left me breathless.
In “Imagine Finding Me,” Chino does something unique that I frankly have never seen before: she digitally inserts herself into old photos, so that she is standing next to her younger self. The concept is simple and her digital manipulation of the photos is done so well it makes it seem she is a time traveler (HMM).
These pictures are filled with a sense of longing for simpler times that may hit you at your core.
Her work is so good, I’m honestly starting to question whether she is a photographer at all. There is a 46% chance she is actually a time lord. I’ll look into it. If you’d like to see more of her time traveling photos, please visit her website.
