Needle-Poked Portraits by Michal Taharlev

Tel-Aviv-based artist Michal Taharlev creates detail old family photos using only a sharp needle and lots of patience.

The Israeli artist used a 0.5mm needle and methodically poked holes in canvases to create the portraits for her 'Holes in Memory' series.

“The use of a needle on a photo and the violent act of damaging and obsessing over memories, yet in a very strict manner, gives a new meaning to the innocence and the unknown future the photos hold.”
