I love photographing hands. They are the human’s tools with which to work and they create, destroy, nurture, and neglect. They create simply powerful images.
In this case, I asked my cousin’s husband to clasp both of his hands so that I could get a close up photograph of his ring. I figured that this would be sort of symbolic of the bond that their marriage created.
I also took a photograph of both of their hands holding with their rings prominently displayed but I had taken the photograph with their camera so I do not have a copy of said photo. This one will have to do.
