Blocks of Stitches Enhance the Diane Meyer Embroidered Photography

Incorporating pictures from the artist's trips all over the world, the Diane Meyer Embroidered Photography series blurs out details with patches of embroidery.

Using the colors and tones that take place in each photograph, Diane Meyer sews a block of stitches right into the image, covering up some aspects of the photo and enhancing others. Identifying facial features become concealed behind the 8-bit pixel effect of the embroidery, making the photos look like they went through some strong Photoshop filter. In scenic photos, small patches of the background become more prominent as they are brought to the foreground through texture and an added dimension.
