hands on

Through this series, I would like to honour those little jobs in Asian’s streets, most of which have disappeared from our occidental countries. I want to pay tribute to those daily street workers, to their hands, reflection of their work, their lives, and their materialized states of mind. There we can see the hardship of their labour and the precision of the gestures, the delicacy of a well-done work and the automation of repetitive tasks, integrated deep into their skin.

There are those hands, which carve and transform, which destroy and build, which sow and reap, which give and receive. There are those hands without which we would have almost, if not, nothing.
