The Making Of HANDSThe process of how the HANDS pictures are taken is almost every time the same. Here you can see how it's done.
How The HANDS Photos Are Taken
To take the photos I just need five minutes of the artist’s time and a sturdy table. I bring a flash, a white background and of course my Leica Monochrom camera. With each artist I discuss how he wants to present his hands in a way that reflects his instrument and his unique playing style. Then we take two or three pictures and that’s it.
If you are a musician and willing to participate in my HANDS project, just let me know. To make it easy for both of us, I will visit one of your concerts in Germany and we will meet before or after the show. Of course you will get the picture by email after I did the post processing for your homepage or social media use.
By the way, if not mentioned otherwise, all the pictures below were taken by my dear friend Sven Kosakowski who joins me to the HANDS shootings whenever his schedule allows.
