a life written on the hands

The picture was taken while documenting the work of the local farmers' cooperative of Levanto in Liguria, Italy, the town I was born in. Living by agriculture, especially there, is very difficult. For lack of plains vineyards and olive trees grow spread all over almost vertical hills. The farmers work must be entirely done by hand. The ground is as harsh and sharp as the hands I found in front of me at the top of one of those hills. These are the hands of an elderly olive trees farmer.

Location: Levanto, Liguria, Italy
