The Chilean artist Maria Aparicio is famous for her original white and black photographies remaked by using color thread. Her work is based on the geometric relations between elements of photographies that she took from social networks, such Flickr.

Usually, she is asked why she doesn’t take her own photographies but María refused to do it, answering as she did on Honk! Magazine:

I don’t dismiss that idea, I found, in taking pictures, a great challenge that someday I will do it. But for instance, I’m more into explore the relation that I’m gaining from my interventions and what I’m seeing.

Taken by herself or not, it doesn’t matter. What we are sure is that she has innovated art context with her mix between photography and handcraft.
