permanent and ingrained

Photography

Family snapshots turned into photographic objects through embroidered pixellation… recently there has been an increase in this type of photo intervention but Diane Meyer’s process is getting at something greater than merely the loss of the physical image. She is marrying the past, the craft and the digital future into one plain of complex layer upon layer.

“I am interested in the failures of photography in preserving experience and personal history, as well as the means by which photographs transform history into nostalgic objects that obscure understandings of the past.” – Diane Meyer.
