15 Ways of Seeing: Hands

By Phoebe - 3 min read

Inspired by John Berger's 1972 book 'Ways of Seeing,' Our '15 Ways of Seeing' series is an invitation to see the world differently. Each week, we highlight one theme with 15 photos. This week we showcase the beauty of the human hand.

“The hand expresses what the heart already knows.”

– Samuel Mockbee
