photos lie

This series of photos that Japanese London-based photographer Chino Otsuka created is pretty cool and proves flat out that photos can and do lie (especially in the age of Photo-Shop). In “Imagine Finding Me,” Chino 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 seems as if she's a time traveler of sorts. They are - if you let yourself go there - filled with a sense of longing for simpler times.
