Hand of God


Hand of God by Jada Cohen

Artist’s Statement: I chose to portray the theme of perception of reality. I arranged the setup with a dusty mirror, vintage camera, and lace by capturing, in natural lighting, a straight-on shot with a hand reaching for a cluster of prop grapes in the center. With contrasting textures, the colors and reflections pop out. I sharpened and softened various parts of this piece with Adobe Lightroom to allow maximum interpretation.
