Old Photos of Russian Immigrants Transformed with Flower Petals

In Running to the Edge project Russian photographer Julia Borissova combines old photos of Russian emigration in 1920’s and simple flower petals by embroidering, glueing cut-outs or attacking the surfaces of the paper to create new images. The antiquated photos are shades of black and white, but the flowers add an interesting splash of color that makes the series entirely memorable.

I reflect on how with the lapse of time some details are erased from our memory and every time we recall something from the past, we construct another image replacing some parts by new ones. I’m trying to do the same with the pictures. This way I’m also trying to achieve the connection between modern dimension and telling a story.
