Photographer Adds Herself to Her Childhood Photos – Chino Ohtsuka

Chino Ohtsuka isn’t just a photographer. She’s a master of insertion. No! Not that kind, she puts current herself back to the past in her old childhood photos. It’s like Back to the Future but no need for a Flux Capacitor. What makes her better than anyone else I’ve ever seen do this? Her skills of putting herself into the photos are quite great. I’d like to see the photos huge to really judge, but so far, they look like they’re aged well, toned right, and sized perfectly. Imagine yourself in your old childhood photos. Someone cash in on the app, quick. You heard it here. (Bored Panda – Chino Ohtsuka) At the moment her site’s bandwidth is exceeded. (Chino...

Frazer, a Caucasian man, became interested in internees in 2006 after photographing San Jose’s annual Day of Remembrance event, which commemorates Roosevelt’s 1942 executive internment Order 9066. After meeting numerous internees at the Day of Remembrance, Frazer began to learn more about the wartime internment, and developed a strong interest in internees’ lives and stories both during and after the war.

Debbie Carlos Takes Over Chicago

Chicago has a lot of great things happening lately. Alinea for high end gastronomy.  Pitchfork for your summer time music fest cravings.  Half Acre Brewery for well…duh, beer and Hot Doug’s for basically any type of encased meat you probably never even thought of.

I was lucky...
