A Handful of Love is the fifth in what will be a series of six hands studies that I am creating.
A Handful of Love is, I think, a universally understood study of intergenerational connection. Ever since I was a young child I have always had a great love for the older generations. Not only my own grandparents, but for my elders in general. Ageing has never daunted me and I love spending time with those who are a lot older than I. In this image I see the calm of that bond, the two people seated by one another reaching across the divide and sharing a moment, an experience and love.
A Handful of Love also puts me in mind of similarity before difference. It is all too easy to be focussed on what differentiates up from those around us, but if we choose to look we will find far more that unites than ever separates.
Once the full series of hands studies has been completed, I will make available limited edition prints and greetings cards of A Handful of Faith and others.
Many thanks go to Réhahn Photography for his inspiring reference images.
