Forgotten no. 2 is an accordion book of embroidered 19th carte de visite photographs. Their bodies and clothing have been hand-embroidered using threads made from both natural fibers and metal. The women’s skirts are crocheted or fabric. This work is in reaction to a lack of interest shown by many in family heritage and ancestry often resulting in family photos being thrown away.
