"My Recollections" was part of a night slideshow at Guizhou Photo Festival, China.
In the series, my grandmother living with dementia appears a lot. She is 96 years old, and I go to see her quite often with my mother.
The series has been slideshowed a few times in the past photo festivals including Angkor, Braga, Kobe and so on, but since it is an ongoing project, it has been updated. I just went to see her even today, and we had some conversation. I sometimes take notes of what she says, as her words are sometimes very unique and even philosophical to me.
The book is called "Fotoğraf Notları" (Notes on Photography) and is published by Galata Fotoğrafhanesi in Istanbul, Turkey. Mitsu's photographic work "Japanese Brazilians" was included among other photographic works mostly produced in Turkey, in the book.
