I have often found myself to be fascinated with hands - the way that the skin stretches over knuckles, and the movement of the tendons. The lines on the palm and across the fingers. The way the skin folds and the joints move. A lot of the photography I have done is focused on hands - usually my own.

One of my favorite photographs is one that I took of my hands after I had been painting:

Another one of my favorites is focused more on the knuckles, and contrasts the photograph above in focus, in mood, and in color:

The last photograph that I chose to include here is of the back of my left hand, showing the tendons that push through the skin:

I also enjoy looking at other people's hands, and observing the differences between their's and mine. I am particularly interested in the hands of those with Marfan Syndrome.


  1. Wow, I love the first photo and the way you captured your hands, the other ones are great too!
