I created a photo series of hands showing different forms of emotion. From the chapter on Hands the phrase, "Hands are the messengers of emotion," stood out to me. I responded by the different kinds of emotion we experience and the role of our hands in the way we portray these emotions. When a mother holds the hand of a child it is showing comfort, while a nervous student will pick or bite their nails. The way we greet and touch other people often require use of hands, like hugging a friend or shaking the hand of a boss. Our hands can easily express how we feel, as shown in these photos.
