Embroidered Vintage Photographs by Julie Cockburn

Published Sep 21, 2017

London-based artist Julie Cockburn injects new life into vintage portraits by embroidering colorful geometric patterns over them.

“When I begin working with a found object, I am not faced with the proverbial blank canvas. I enter into a conversation with something that has its own history.”

— Julie Cockburn
