We all know the appeal of vintage images, but Italian artist Maurizio Anzeri has taken them to the next level with his series of embroidered photographs.

Delicate yet bold, the embroidery forms geometric patterns over and about the subjects' faces which manages to both obscure and accentuate their form. Breathtaking.

Anzeri is part of MakeUp, a collective exhibition at A Palazzo Gallery which runs until March.
