All photographers take a parting shot of their subjects after the shoot - for luck and for their personal records. Eve Arnold always photographed the hands - and sometimes the feet - of her sitters. In this beautifully produced book is a selection of two hundred of these photographs in colour and black and white. Spanning Eve's entire career, they also add up to a profound and deeply moving picture of humanity. Here are old hands, young hands, mothers cradling their children, people gripping guns, hands tied up, hands being hennaed, chopping food, holding flowers, performing surgery and playing cards, eating, painting, saluting and blessing. Sometimes witty, always compassionate, this is a wonderful collection from a legendary photographer.
