People I Know
‘…with right hand to god and eyes to man.’ I created this series of hand and face portraits to emulate the symbolic gesture of telling the truth before God. Many are convinced that the eyes are the windows of the soul. I believe the hands are the true windows to the soul. I ask the subject to face their palms toward the camera to gather information about their life expectancy, health, wealth and love. I consulted a New Orleanian clairvoyant to document the subject’s character and nature. People I Know’ is a series of self-actualization and honesty. My goal is to translate the vernacular of the subconscious that is seldom seen and heard in one’s public life.
