Handmade

These are the hands of a young Cambodian girl, working in a factory in a rural area near Battambang. Being from Italy, I am always impressed with everything that classifies ad handmade, but in this case I found it not interesting, but also beautiful. The elegance and sweetness of the movement of the girl's hands were in contrast with her appearance and the context we were in, quite modest not to say poor.
