The Evocative Power of Hands

Our hands are beautiful miracles. As one of our greatest means for interacting with the world, they are our tools for creation, cultivation, and care. We use them to seek out, reach, pull, caress, and explore our way through everyday encounters and meaningful relationships. They help us to communicate gestures both subtle and undeniably powerful. Hands can serve as an invitation and reassurance. They can also be a testament and witness to experience. 

I try and document hands in every single shoot I do, whether it's the seduction and playfulness of a boudoir session or the distinctive character of a portrait. When was the last time you appreciated your own hands for what they give to you? Have you marveled at the exquisite beauty and power of your lover's hands? Try to look at them differently today.
