The Assassination

Orna Willis found photographs of an exhibit by Richard Bassett that uses photographs from the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated as the basis for needlepoint.  

Orna has some interesting questions as to the significance of photos so ubiquitous that we recognize them immediately and whether turning them into needlepoint makes them fresh again.  Or perhaps he is stitching through his grief all these years later?

Many needlepointers use needlepoint to make traumas more bearable, after all.
