The Henna Hands Malka

I was always fascinated by people’s hands.
They always tell me a story about the character.
When I shoot portraits, I always observe the hands and how people place them.
I often ask them to show them to me.
Her hands were red from Henna, covered in dust and very dry.

When I asked her to show them to me, she opened them forward in a very gracious and simple way.
I was told by a friend that Henna is applied to the hands and feet for its healing and medicinal properties. It is also a cooling agent in hot climates.
It is believed in very ancient cultures that go back thousands of years, henna had qualities that improved human awareness of the earth’s energies.
It was therefore applied to help people keep in touch with their spirituality.
