Hands On

Water Clap by Jennah Gangelhoff

We use our hands to gesture expressions such as hello and goodbye. They can often times be the subject of interpretation and misinterpretation. In photography, hands can be the main feature of a photo or be included to help prop up the main subject. Two people holding hands stimulates a loving emotion; a fist is a sign of anger; whereas a pointing finger shouts "hey you!"

Hands could be considered the basic tools of life with ability to allow us to type, text, write, draw, and grasp objects of various sizes. Our hands also offer us the ability to form new language such as sign language and the ability to read Braille. Imagine if you lost the ability to use your hands.
