Stitchgasm! – Melissa Zexter’s Embroidered Photographs

Another Stitchgasm from Mr X Stitch!Stitching into photographs is a great way to mix two different types of media, and has been approached in many ways by many artists, including Jose Romussi and Cecile Jarsaillon.

Melissa Zexter is photographer who has utilized embroidery to enhance photographs.

Melissa’s series of landscapes are my personal favourite, as I love the subtle texture that is added in a way that is sympathetic to the atmosphere of the original photograph.
