These amazing, hand-stitched portrait by Daniel Kornrumpf are blowing my mind. I was showing a co-worker these yesterday and we were sitting there analyzing each of these, combing over the minor details. I particularly love the subtlety of the lips and how the threads follow the the contours and cracks. It’s almost like he’s painting with thread. The other detail I enjoyed was in the second photo, the tiny bit of red eye thread in the inner corners of the guys eyes, it really emphasizes the look of being beaten down or tired. Daniel has received a ton of press already for these images, hopefully all the positive write-ups have inspired him to do more. I would love to send him my photo and get one of these of myself.
