Chino Otsuka : Imagine Finding Me
Chino Otsuka uses photography and video to explore the fluid relationship between the memory, time and photography. At age 10 she moved from Japan to the United Kingdom to attend school. Her experience of becoming familiar with a new place, a different language and new customs while she was developing her adolescent identity has profoundly shaped her work in photography, video and writing. Her series Imagine Finding Me consists of double self-portraits, with images of her present self beside her past self in various places she has visited. As Otsuka says: “The digital process becomes a tool, almost like a time machine, as I’m embarking on the journey to where I once belonged and at the same time becoming a tourist in my own history.” - via AGO

Um, bless you. It’s my husband! He is also a handsome short dude, but he definitely doesn’t have Messina’s dance moves.
Oh man I made brownies tonight and Ryan and I just THREW DOWN.
So, thanks to anti-vax weirdos and relaxed vaccination guidelines at her school, my friend who is a teacher has been sick for weeks with whooping cough.
Thanks, weirdos. Look up herd immunity. And while you’re at it, please punch yourself in the face.
May you step on a million Legos.
So within three minutes of logging in to Facebook I saw a horrible article in support of gay conversion posted by someone I actually really like (and now must unfortunately unfriend,) and then a date rape joke.
ETA: AND AN ANTI-VACCINE ARTICLE! God why are my Facebook friends the actual worst?
