As a symbol, hands have begun to fascinate me lately. They have so much power to tell the deepest, most primal stories of our humanity. Fear, survival, love, belonging, safety, evolution, history, ability… there so many stories contained within this single element of our bodies.
These images were shot at the end of my last shoot with the calf’s heart, just experimenting and going wherever intuition takes me…
Been trying to get a nap in this evening, but instead found my head swimming around with a million little details that I need to get nailed down before my first shoot this Saturday.. so I gave up on the nap and decided to do a bit of research for the April project. Pretty excited to have found Danish photographer Lasse Damgaard – who’s traveled throughout the US and Europe to capture these stunning portraits of everyday people.
Click HERE to check out his full collection (including the US and the European Portrait Collections). Also, I highly recommend dropping by his DeviantArt profile and reading the stories that go along with each portrait: US Series | European Series
Hope you enjoy his work as much as I have!
