#HoldingHands is about people holding each other up.

There was a large model meetup in Whitby organized by Drew Catherine. I missed a previous one so I wanted to come and shoot some interesting portraits with the group. The core of my idea was to create a series of strong portraits involving a large group of hands surrounding a single model. Each model would get a chance to be in the centre surrounded by the hands with unique poses for each person.

It was importrant to me that they be portraits of people surrounded by hands that aren’t holding the subjects back, or holding them down, but supporting then and lending them strength.

Shot in Whitby, Ontario on November 17th, 2018.
