I love when photographs become something more than just that, when new textures, patterns and stories appear. For that reason I am going to share with you these beautiful findings with unique harmony between photographs and embroidery, where a thread becomes an inseparable part of the image.
The Author of these photographic collages is Santa Monica based artist Diane Meyer. Diane adds cross stitch embroidery to old photographs in this way creating a pixelated layer that hides the original. The artist makes a reference between the photographic failures in preserving the moment, and letting it become a very subjective personal memory.
All the images used in this post can be found at Diane Meyer’s website.
