This is of my brother Mark who has become a big muse of mine for the past few months. It combines three of my favorite things: hands, light, and wood. I love photos of hands because I think they say a lot about someone, and Mark is a rapidly-growing teenage boy. At first glance he no longer looks like a child, but here you can see that he still has a lot of growing to do. It reminds me of how close I am with my family, and all the growing we've done together.
