Embroidered Travel Snapshots by Teresa Lim

Textile artist Teresa Lim embroiders detailed places she visits when she travels the world, in her ongoing series 'Sew Wanderlust'.

“I started the project late 2014 after I realised that with today’s state of the art technology, taking pictures becomes so easy. I wanted something more from my travels, to be able to take back a part of that place with me. One thing I realised is that when you take a photo of a place, you don’t actually pick up as much detail as when you actually sit down and draw or sew it. When I’m done with a piece, I actually feel like I KNOW that place, and that gives me a huge sense of satisfaction that I think just taking a photo wouldn’t give.”
