Photo Friday | In Praise of Hands
Where do the objects you use come from?
Who made them, and how?
As December kicks off, unleashing the usual holiday buying frenzy, take a minute to admire craftspeople from around the world as they create unique objects by hand.
The photos stem from Donald Winkler’s In Praise of Hands, a short doc that zooms in on the rich and ancient relationship between hand and craft.
From indigo-dyed cloth made by the Yoruba of Nigeria to the fascinating Ocumicho clay figurines of Michoacán, Mexico, the film is a timely ode to artisans and the unique beauty of handmade products.
Enjoy it, and the photos, below.
