Description
Many of us may think we communicate with words, but tie our hands down and about half of the world's communicators would be silenced. Hands are certainly one of the most expressive parts of our bodies: they ask someone to come or to go, they are scolding and rewarding, searching and finding, loving and lustful. Elliott Erwitt's photographs of hands, writes Charles Flowers in his introduction to this book, "are photos of character, of feeling and discourse, of life in flow guided or articulated by gesture." The 93 black and white photographs presented here range from portraits of the famous—Pablo Casals, obviously frustrated by the limitations posed by arthritis in his hands, and Suzanne Farrell, right hand tucked gracefully under her left arm while sweeping nearly halfway across her back in an attitude of repose—to the candid life moments of Everyperson: a child's hand reaching out to an elephant's trunk; a pregnant woman, asleep on a chair, hands held protectively over her stomach; a street musician sitting on a corner in San Francisco, harmonica in one hand while the other rests on the head of the dog in his lap.
