Photographer's Note

Ever since I discovered the beauty of my father's hands, over 20 years ago, I have always been fascinated by hands.
But it was Curtis with the workshop on one of my pictures who showed me a lot of tenderness, also with his own picture 'touching'. For a while, I went back again and again to both these pictures. Therefore this one is for Curtis.
So, I look for those moments when I'm out with my camera, a combination of tenderness and hands.

This one year old boy was listening to an Australian band that was playing during a Street Performance Festival in Rotterdam. All the time he wanted to go near, but I guess his father was afraid that he might get stuck in the electrical cords, not the best place for a one year old.

Unsharp mask on the hands, cloned out some overcast parts in the background, and burned the background a bit, some level adjustements, and added a frame
