Artist Claire Pestaillee has a knack for vintage photography and putting it into her own perspective. Pestaillee's pieces consist of photo-based collage work and paintings.

In one of her most recent exhibitions, Claire Pestaillee released a series of her work in which she rearranged old photographs into new masterpieces. By cutting block-sized pieces of the photos and repositioning them, she is able to achieve a unique mosaic outcome.

Implications - With so many different styles emerging each day, modern consumers are looking for ways to stay connected to simpler times. Products that contain a classic element are appealing to those who desire a subtler aesthetic in their purchases. In order to appeal to more shoppers, companies could develop more items with this older element in mind.
