Amy Friend

Nostalgia never looked this good. Canadian artist Amy Friend ‘re-makes’ old vintage photographs and gives new life and meaning to long forgotten fragments. The works are part of a project called Dare alla Luce, meaning To Bring the Light (in Italian). As the title suggests, Amy brings new light to the old fragments in the images. “I return the subject of the photographs back to the light, while simultaneously bringing them forward. The images are permanently altered; they are lost and reborn.” 

Amy Friend lives and works in Ontario, Canada. More about her other projects to be found on her site:

Merve Ozaslan

Istanbul-based artist Merve Ozaslan collects old vintage photographs and gives them a gorgeous natural touch. By merging together forests and urban life, she doesn’t only create fascinating images but also questions the relation between nature and humanity in general. “it seeks the answer whether greed, urbanization, mechanization and detaching from the nature is favorable or coherent for human or not. In that sense natural act appears with its all colors when our emotions are paralyzed in the vital points of the cliche and dull city life.”

Daisy Patton

These mysterious & playful portraits are the work of Daisy Patton. Currently living in Denver, Colorado, Daisy is an artist who is fascinated by family, memory and the temporal value of the photograph. The works below are from a series called Forgetting is So Long and the people in the collected photographs are unknown strangers from the past. As Daisy herself explains:

“They say we die two deaths: the first is our actual passing; the second is when the last person who carries a memory of us takes their final breath. Family photographs, vessels of memory, are therefore integral to extending this quasi-life. They show a mother, a child, a past self, full of in-jokes and minutia meaningful only to a select few. But divorced from their origins and subjects, these emotion-ridden images become empty and unknowable, for they are intrinsically entwined with the intimate memories of someone.”

Daisy Patton earned her MFA at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and Tufts University.
If you happen to live near Denver, you will have an opportunity to see her work in real life at the Michael Warren Contemporary Gallery from december 2014 to january 2015. If not, you can visit her site for many more beautiful works:
