Feet and Hands Photography Project

Alberto, 2011.

Around the year 2009, when I was actively shooting male models and looking for other photography projects, I thought about shooting some (hopefully) artistic photographs of hands and feet in different posses. The setting would be generally the same - against a white or black backdrop not to distract from the composition. 

The easy part was already built in: Just ask the models I was working with if they would participate. Most were willing and thought it would be good idea. The hard part was making it fun for both of us and churning out some decent photos that didn't look too fetishistic (unless that was the goal of the day), or particularly common. 

Honestly, I could go on about the process but you get the drift. I had many, many photos once it was all said and done, but of course several were not good, or too similar. Others have been lost through external drive crashes. The ones which survive are, I think, a pretty good representation of what I had. The photos I have here are actually some of my faves, so it all worked in my favor that they survived. I hope you like them, too.
