This is: Flirting with photography

We've recently posted a flurry of photographic fancies, and so it seems fitting that we mention our latest find. Italian artist Maurizio Anzeri loiters flea markets and the like to collect old photographs which he then hand embroiders. He creates highly detailed patterns and forms that call to mind the work of Weimar artists Hannah Hoch and John Heartfield. His work has even featured on the cover of the English Crafts magazine.
