A Personal Touch Meets A Touch Of Personal

Handprint Portraits
artist: Gary Schneider

Please contact AERO for pricing 212-966-1500

I have had the pleasure of meeting Gary and he is a truly fascinating guy, a native South African he began working in the early nineties on what would become his signature.  Gary describes his work by the following:
"These photographs, made without a camera, are sweat and heat imprints onto film emulsion. I consider handprint portraits to be as expressive as any of a face, more private, and possibly more revealing. They do not reveal race and, often, neither gender nor age"

His work is truly unique and personal, no two portraits are ever the same, I highly recommend making room on your walls for one of his pieces!
