Photographer Chino Otsuka has created a series of poignant photo manipulations by inserting herself into old family photos.

Otsuka has skillfully inserted herself next to her child-self or her parents, or even in the background of the photograph. The manipulations are extremely skillful with enough mastery over lighting, texture and edging effects to make it look like she was in the photographs to begin with.

These manipulations can be seen as a reflection aging and memories. The scenes are mundane; making snowmen, taking the train, visiting monuments and eating outside of cafes. Chino Otsuka is a skilled graphic artist who has created visually striking ad memorable photographs that will have viewers wondering if she found a time machine and traveled into her own past.
