Bridges: St. Louis, 1904 & Today

Hand Embroidered Photography

Bridges combines photography and hand embroidery. In this series, the thread acts as elements of spirit, life, and delight that aim to bridge the gap between two eras of Forest Park. 

Half of the photographs come from the Missouri History Museum’s collection of 1904 World's Fair/Olympics historical photographs, and the other half I took recently. Together, the images highlight changes in the Forest Park area that have occurred over time, and consistencies that make (and will continue to make) Forest Park such a wonderful and whimsical public space.
