Salut John,
Tu passes à Bruxelles? il me semble que je te dois une ou deux bières, non?

John! :))) great work, love the story. I was struck by the significance of hands throughout the work. Both on an initial look through, and then again upon a second reading, I was stunned by this motif: like fans, butterflys, tools, musical notes, the significance of the subjects’ hands. This only makes sense, given the story of reconstruction/building: but what makes this powerful for me (as a viewer) are both the strength and the delicacy of the moments when the hands being shot are doing something: holding a mirror, a camera/videorecorder, a tool, a piece of bamboo, a hat…etc: Reconstruction/retelling: the bond of their skin-bone to the wood-land: farmers and architects: something often history forgets. My grandmother once told me: “before you shoot, look at the hands….you’ll see the story there first…”….Strong work and I enjoyed it very much. thanks for sharing with us. cheers, bob

Thanks Bob… My grandmother told me to look at people’s shoes if I wanted to know who they are…


And if you want someone to give a hand, you know where to call…

When I worked, years ago, in a bookstore, my boss, who had a knack for catching thieves, always said, “look at their shoes, then you’ll know if they are legit customers”!!!

When I was a student in a Brussels’s photographic school, I did a small internship in MSF and I looked at your photos quiet often. I remermber that I admired your verticals (water in sahel story or refugees story) and the way you were composing your pictures (with the hands also…) you still do… no charming and superficial visual effects which make us forget the subject, BRAVO
