Maurizio Anzeri, “Marianna”, 2010
Interested in the qualities of vintage photographs, Anzeri uses embroidery on top of old found portraits to create almost a surreal-psychological mixed media image. Where the old photographs are soft, the threads are colorful and shiny. They create strange costumes and masks around the figures that also act as auras. I always find and mixing of other media with photography, and this one is very different and successful.
