Charles Flowers on Elliott Erwitt’s Handbook (2003)

“Always include hands, because they are more expressive than the face”

"...as much as 60 percent of all human communication anywhere in the world is non-verbal, being accomplished principally with the hands"

"...we want to touch and be touched, or we wither away and die"

The mind’s eye pt.2

“There are those who take photographs arranged beforehand and those who go out to discover the image and seize it. For me the camera is a sketch book, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity, the master of the instant which, in visual terms, questions and decides simultaneously.”

Henri Cartier-Bresson 1999 The mind’s eye. Writings on photography and photographers. Aperture

This photograph was taken while waiting for the start of the run ‘Not Since Moses’ in the Minas Basin, NS
