The Regime

Tom Benedict

No, I haven't gone off the deep end. These are for an Iron Photographer project on Utata.
The elements for Iron Photographer 212 are:

1 - a thing in the palm of your hand
2 - your hand resting on a flat surface
3 - holga-fied

The question I had to puzzle with on this assignment was figuring out WHY a hand would be resting on a flat surface. That would explain, better than anything else, what would be in the palm. I came up with a couple of answers.

The inspiration for this one came when I asked if the thing in the hand had to be placed there by the owner of the hand. When I realized the answer was "no" this sprang to mind.

I have to thank my extremely patient daughter for helping out a fellow artist by donning her combat boots and playing a truly bizarre game of twister. She simultaneously stood on my hand while balancing pointe on the other foot, and occasionally reached over to trip the shutter while I lay on the ground. The idea was mine, but the execution was a collaborative effort.
