Woven lives

We stumbled upon some pictures of Nate Berkus apartment in Chicago, a very nice space indeed, and we rediscovered a woven photograph by the late Fernando Bengoechea.

We met Fernando in New York many years ago (1998 maybe), he was working in a photo shoot for a friend of mine. We were both from Argentina, the exact same age, we were born in the same city and went to the same places as we were growing up. Talk about coincidences...He was a fantastic photographer and such a nice guy!

The woven photographs are painstakingly cut and then woven back together, adding this way a new depth and converting them into works of art.

You can visit the website for more information. His brother Marcelo is keeping Fernando's work alive.
