Berend Strik prefers the word “stitching” over “embroidery” in reference to his own practice; for Strik, the latter is necessarily image-based, whereas the former simply refers to attaching one material on top of another. Strik makes c-prints of photographs he finds or takes during his travels, and then highlights parts of the compositions by sewing fabric onto the images. In his words, he uses “stitching to make part of the photographs more physical.” Strik has also worked with images of more contentious subject matter, as in his series of images taken from his own trip to the West Bank and Israel.
