There are a lot of adjectives that could be spent to describe the photo series Ô les mains, by multi-media artist Babak Hosseiny and photographer Jeffrey Vanhoutte: it’s controversial, provocative, disturbing but also visually beautiful, so charming that we can’t stop staring at these amazing digitally manipulated photos.
The entire work was inspired by a quote from philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein: “If you do know that here is one hand, we’ll grant you all the rest”.
The photos show hands and fingers coming out from different body parts of the subjects, just like an external entity is trying to take control of the person.
We’ve found the idea really brilliant and we can’t wait for you to see these pictures.
