Our Hands

Our hands tell many stories. You'd be surprised at how many people don't want their hands photographed. They say 'no, they're ugly' or 'no, they look awful.' Why is this? I could understand if maybe I was like, 'Let me take a close up of your face with no makeup right after you wake up.' Then I can understand. In reality, our hands are in some way very personal and private. They are a reflection of our lives and our habits.

Painted nails. Picked over cuticles. Scars. Spots. Rough patches. Wrinkles. Lumps. Freckles. Hairs.

This is my left hand. In all its day-to-day glory.

What do your hands look like? What do your hands show?
