Lupus Garrett is an American artist who uses old found photographs as his mase and reworks them using mixed media such as paint, applique, embroidery, buttons, medels etc. I like his idea of givin old photographs new life!

I think this artist was mentioned in one of our essays, i decided to have a look at his work because i thought that in related to my own work with old photographs. He found some old photographs of Amsterdam in a flea market and went and took new photographs of the same place and them superimposted the old ones onto the new images in a "ghost" like style. I think the images are a great way of looking into the past and re-using old images.
