Retouching Old Photos

Nature Tutor

Calli by Chelsea Revelle (click for more)

The photograph of a woman from the 19th century has been retouched with embroidery work. The idea behind this is to explore how women pursued artworks like embroidery when they had fewer options and lesser intellectual stimulation. They sewed and stitched floral patterns with leaves and other natural elements. Even in somebody with little exposure, the imagination can fetch vivid images of the natural world.
