DIANE MEYER’S EMBROIDERED PHOTOGRAPHY

nj4

Diane Meyer’s work is about memory, history and embroidery. The American photographer takes photographs from different places and times in her life, and then embroiders sections of the photo like little pixelations scarring the image.

Meyer’s work explores the fluctuating nature of memory, and how we try and record these ‘truths’ through photography. “The project refers to the failures of photography in preserving experience and personal history,” Meyer says. “As well as the means by which photographs become nostalgic objects that obscure objective understandings of the past”.
