Hands Are Symbols Of Desires And Fears

Appendages are growing out of all sorts of strange places in this creep-tastic series of digitally manipulated photos by Babak Hosseiny and Jeffrey Vanhoute entitled “O les mains”.

There are fingers where hair should be, angry arms ordering a hand to pull back on some poor guy’s face by his eyelids, and all sorts of appendage shaped protrusions in all kinds of wrong places.

Hosseiny was influenced by a Wittgenstein book he'd read about hands being the symbols of a person’s fears and desires, and together with Belgian photographer Jeffrey Vanhoute he brought this idea to light in a disturbingly surreal manner.

The images in the series were created using traditional studio photos of the subjects, which were then digitally composited together, creating the desired, and decidedly creepy, effect.
