Old Photographs Given New Life

Set me in front of a box of yellowing, old photographs, and I’ll completely tune out my surroundings, lost in a trance like an asp curling to the music of a snake charmer’s pungi. Plunging into this lost past is fascinating, and judging from her eerie-meets-incredible art, I’m guessing that artist Amy Friend feels the same way. Taking old images and carefully pinpricking them with light, Ms. Friend has done what I would have thought impossible: she made old photographs even more hauntingly interesting.

About Hannah

"Q: Where do cantaloupes go for the summer? A: John Cougar Mellon Camp!" From that joke you can surmise a few things about Hannah -- she loves a good pun, she delights in irreverence, and red peppers are her vegetable of choice. How does one figure out Hannah loves red peppers from that joke? Hmm, that's top secret. Hannah also adores outdoor activities, arts & crafts, reading, and being abroad.
