We’ve stumbled over this collection of photographs dressed with a poignant twist by artist Diane Meyer over at Flavorwire, and we just fell in love at first sight. Have a look.
The act of blurring certain portions (if not, all) of a photograph is not exactly groundbreaking, but what makes Diane Meyer’s work stand out is that she takes personal photographs taken at various points and places of her life, and obscures sections by meticulously sewing each pixel in.
Meyers shares that the project, entitled Time Spent That Might Otherwise Be Forgotten, “refers to the failures of photography in preserving experience and personal history as well as the means by which photographs become nostalgic objects that objective understandings of the past.”
The result is a poignant, and beautifully textured set of mementos.
