Embroidered Photos

Embroidered Photos

This idea particularly interested me because I am currently involved in a research project examining vernacular photography before the digital era. These old photos are given new life as pieces of art even after the contextual information missing. Embroidery on photos is an old technique that was used on postcards for tourist to fancy them up a bit and increase sales.
