These photographs of handscapes under the sky are an emotional journey and have a deeper purpose and reflection on life that leaves an indelible mark on the soul.
The collection unveils a series of hands, transformed into ancient and mysterious landscapes through the interplay of wavy lines flowing as horizons. These hands become mountains, roads, and symbols of the human experience.
The roads , landscapes serve as a poignant reminder of the challenges and suffering that we all encounter along life’s path. The lines and contours etched on the hand’s surface become symbolic representations of the obstacles we face, the hardships we endure, and the resilience we summon to overcome them.
Yet, as you traverse the roads of the handscapes, a sense of hope begins to emerge. Beyond the dark and foreboding landscapes lies a horizon that beckons with clouds of cleansing rain and overwhelming experiences. It is a gentle reminder that while life may be riddled with challenges, there is always a glimmer of optimism and the possibility of transformative growth.
The landscapes of our lives are not determined solely by our struggles but also by our ability to envision a future where beauty and enlightenment await. It is an invitation to look beyond the surface, to embrace the challenges that shape us, and to seek the transformative experiences that lie just beyond the horizon.
These pictures are part of a larger selection.
