HANDS ON: THE SOUTH by Micah Green

Foreword by Kayla Green.

In 2017 I was invited to participate in my first group show at a museum in Laurel, Missisippi. The show, which wouldn’t ultimately take place until 2021, was themed around the act of finding home. In 2019, I got married and my wife and I went to Amsterdam. After spending an afternoon at the Rijksmuseum looking at the attention paid to the hands by master painters and sculptors, despite them being such a small portion of the overall work, I was slowly inspired to pay more attention to hands in my own work. I was not born in the South, but grew up here, and through my job as a photojournalist, I am able to reexamine parts of this region that I may not have fully understood as a child. With a foreword by my journalist wife, Kayla Green, the photographs chosen for Hands On: The South focus on the hands of the people I have met through my work as they work and worship, play and protest.
