Embroidered Photographs That Illustrate the Failures of Photography

Diane Meyer’s “Time Spent That Might Otherwise Be Forgotten” project isn’t so much about what photography can do, but rather what photography can’t do. By embroidering pixel patterns into sections of her photographs, Meyer’s work focuses on the inability of photography to truly preserve “experience and personal history.”

The embroidery is sewn directly into the photographs, forming patches of pixelated stitching that, according to Meyer, represent “the means by which photographs become nostalgic objects that obscure objective understandings of the past.”
