In the past we’ve seen many artists breathe new life into old photographs and create art that’s their own. Now, an addition to the list is Lauren King, who seemingly completes the scene captured on a vintage photograph by putting it in the middle of a paper and making sketches outside the borders of the photo using graphite.

The resulting images would’ve looked seamless if not for the white borders around the photographs, but are imaginative all the same. The sketches alone are noteworthy for being detailed.

Have a look at some of her works below!
