Inspiration: Jane Deschner

Artist Jane Descher creates these beautiful pieces from found photographs. She embroiders quotes from writers, musicians and philosophers onto the photos, as well as using the photographs as fabric to construct garments like the pieces above. Last September she was featured in Fiberarts Magazine and she described her practice as apporpriating everything, "Photographs taken by others; words spoken by others; fonts and embroidery stitches created  by others. My contribution is to gather, then combine these disparate elements into something more than the sum of their parts" you can read the full article, here
