This collection of dramatic black & 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.
When people who work with their hands describe their work, they use the vocabulary of the spirit. They talk of living in their hands; of the need to touch raw materials, get their hands dirty, strain their muscles, use the body to create.†For them, the materials they use are alive and responsive; through their hands they connect to different times, places, and people.
Photographer Summer Moon Scriver has been practicing her art as a portrait and landscape photographer for over ten years.† Her work has been shown in galleries across the Northwest.
Author Iris Gravilleís interviews, essays, and memoir pieces have been published in national and regional journals and magazines.
