Description
"A helping hand makes a happy heart," promises a Chinese proverb, and the hands portrayed in this compact album are true expressions of human nature that transcend boundaries of language and culture. Whether stretched out in acceptance or clenched in defiance, worn from labor in the fields or immaculately manicured in the salon, these hands highlight the extraordinary diversity and character of people across Asia, captured in 135 color photographs by Hans Kemp and others, and accompanied by relevant quotes and proverbs from Asia. The Dutch photographer whose book Bikes of Burden was mentioned on the floor of the U.S. Senate as proof of Vietnam's economic vitality in major trade negotiations, Kemp has been a frequent and widely traveled visitor to Asia since the mid-1980s. The vivid color images collected here are both evocative and profoundly humane, depicting a world vastly different from our own yet built on the same foundations.
