Reveries: Hands

Part of my upcoming photo book on Guangzhou, China titled, Reveries. "Reveries" offer a gateway through the subconscious and a journey through a sequence of Reveries as seen through a protagonist in reflection of the past and contemplation for the future of Guangzhou. Guangzhou is currently undergoing a massive evolution in economics and culture. Leaving the culture stuck between the new and the old. This is an image of a man's hand resting on a escalator rail. His sleeves are rolled up and one can make the assumption that he is just getting off work. In the past few years, many of the Chinese are trading in old blue collar work for the financial industry. Many of the images in "Reveries" show geometric lines and subjects moving upwards, suggesting positive change and direction. This image shows the subject moving downwards which may suggest other things.
