Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0615220185, Hardcover)

This collection of dramatic black and white portraits by Summer Moon Scriver along with companion profiles by Iris Graville captures the drama and tells the stories of people who work with their hands. The 144-page coffee-table book offers 23 full-length profiles and three themed collages of people passionate about their work. Scriver s photographs and book designer Bob Lanphear s layouts are a powerful combination: many of the 126 black-and-white art images are printed larger than life. Viewed in such deft detail, hands take on sensual elegance; an oboe player s thumb and forefinger steady his instrument; a midwife s hand clasps the palm of a laboring mother. Author Graville also moves in close, allowing individuals to speak with unselfconscious candor. Written in the tradition of Studs Turkel s classic book, Working, Graville and Scriver have created a collection of stories that connect and inspire.
