lace tailored on photo

My parent’s marriage photos’. Lace is tailored only on women’s faces.

Il Pizzo is made up some of my parents’ wedding photos, a classic set of photos for that time, with my mother dressed in illusions and white lace. Like all photos from that period, the pictures are getting older now and the images are starting to fade. Only the lace that I’ve sewn onto them will remain. There is a disquieting transparency in this type of family photos; sewing bits of lace on to them seemed to restore the mystery that the social function seemed to have removed from them.
