Just like a person’s face, hands can have a story to tell. Fingers tinted deep blue with indigo dye or stained the color of the earth after decades of planting reveal skills that have been built over the course of generations. While hands leafing gently through the pages of an ancient text or intertwined with those of a loved one can inspire an emotional response in the viewer. The lines etched into the hands of an 80-year-old woman can be traced like roads on the map of her life. Each photograph in this portfolio depicts a moment of daily life that can rise to the extraordinary when one takes time to look at the details.
“The Story of Hands” is a tribute to the complexity of life, the emotions that can be read on our palms, and the sensory memory of what it feels like to take the hand of someone we hold dear.
