The subtle language of hands

Sometimes it’s neither in the facial expression, nor in the words spoken. Sometimes the subtle language of love and what’s surrounding it is shown in its pure form by our hands and gestures.  As I was going through my recent work I’ve noticed that hands can play a huge role in telling a story. They do the work for us and we take that for granted, of course, however they also communicate, promise, confirm, refuse, instruct, admit and admire. They say what we often cannot describe and stress what we indeed can. 

This short entry is a tiny ode to hands and how they often are overlooked in both photography and telling a story, yet so important in documenting love.
