Hand-Embroidered Photographs by Artist Diane Meyer

American artist Diane Meyer questions the ability of photography to accurately preserve our memory and experience, highlighting its tendency to obscure the past by transforming history into an object of nostalgia. Embroidering directly onto photographs taken along the former path of the Berlin wall, see more images from “Berlin” below.

You can also click here to see our previous post on Meyer’s series of hand-embroidered family photos, “Time Spent That Might Otherwise Be Forgotten,” a selection of which is on display at the George Eastman Museum in New York until Janurary 29th.
