Fabric Photos

I'm fascinated by the way that photos take on a different personality when printed on fabric. Different weights and opacities of silk, sateen, cottons and canvas make the same image look completely different. I started layering fabric photos together when I noticed how fabric photos stacked on my work table were accidentally creating a whole new world of images. I was no longer limited by a particular "story" in the original photos.
