Stacey Page’s Absurd and Wonderful Embroidered Portraiture

Beware, folks in vintage photographs: Stacey Page can see the real you. Page, whose work we first spotted over at The Jealous Curator, augments found vintage portraits with wild embroidery, creating new characters out of the (very) old. Of the relationship between the people in the photos and her embroidery, she explains, “It can come from naturally occurring conflicts. One example would be the inner versus outer being. This conflict entails simple observations one might have about themselves regarding fashion, status, ego, and avatar.” Because hey, we’ve all got a fox eating our head somewhere deep inside our souls. Click through to see some of our favorites of Page’s recent work, and then be sure to head on over to her website to check out even more greatness.
