At the first sight, I believed that you photographed a skateboarder! :) This man seems physically too tiny for carving the marble!
I like the pose you captured with the gloves hiding his face! A good symbol of an artist an his hard work behind his artwork! Excellent colors and management of light! Bravo! Annie

Boa noite Jose
Man history is long one and hands are so important.
His hands are controled with the mind. Hidden the face and express the world by hands. Love the colours, the light and all the moments of creation.
This is great event and a great moment to feel how art and life are so close.
There are somethings free in life.
Você deve conhecer o belo poema de Carlos Drumond de Andrade, E agora José?
Foi o que me veio à memória ao ver essas mãos excelentemente capturadas:
"E agora, José?
A festa acabou,
a luz apagou,
o povo sumiu,
a noite esfriou,
e agora, José ?
e agora, você ?
você que é sem nome,
que zomba dos outros,
você que faz versos,
que ama protesta,
e agora, José ?

Foto interessante, amigo mb.
Como sempre, tons maravilhosos.
Também gostei muito da nota.
Meus parabéns, meu caro.
A superb shot of the sculptor with good use of a shallow dof & excllent colour and lighting. Unusual portrait, focussing on the hands that create, & not the face. Tfs!

Um interessante documentário, finos detalhes!
Eu gosto do ArtWork e das cores,
uma bonita definição da imagem,
Gosto da composição equilibrada,
acentuado em detalhes o tema principal
com cores frescas ...
I like the way you took this.
No doubt not wanting his face photographed you made him use his tools which are his hands. He is obviously a left hander as the glove is really worn out compared to the one on the left (which is his right). It tells a story.

Looking to these hands, I am motivated by my fantasy to believe that there are parallels between them, and the face. It must not be, but can be. There is a lot of latent significance in this capture.

Bom dia Jose,
bonita imagem, uma forte expressão. I am trying to find the best words to describe how I feel about this image...
* so different
* so original
* so symbolic.
I love it. Bem capturada esta cena. Cores e contrastes excelentes. Bela escolha de composição, uma imagem muito artística.

Impressive shot with good back light
A japanese, yes, a hand worker sure , maybe shy, but nothing could have induced me in thinking he was a great sculptor.However "l'habit ne fait pas le moine" as we say in french (- the dress does not make the monk- )
Thank you , besides, for your note which led me to know "the Simppetra" and seek more yet through internet.
Regards and Have a nice day

Hi Jose, A fine story with this photo. It is always amazing to see the skill of the artisans in carving sculptures from hard stone. The mystery of the hands in front of the face makes this intriging. Good work and happy easter from Sydney. Murray.

Except the philosophy behind this shot and the mood you were looking for, the composition, lighting, and clarity are not as I expect.
As you are a great photographer, I tried to be honest...
Best Regards, Alireza ;)

Uma obra artística é o resultado de um porcento de inspiração e noventa e nove por cento de transpiração! Não sei se o clichet está transcrito literalmente mas a ideia está lá…
De entre as várias disciplinas das artes plásticas esta é uma das que mais admiro já que associa a rudeza da pedra à sensibilidade de quem a trabalha! É um trabalho duro no verdadeiro sentido da expressão como parece querer dizer Hiroyuki Asano ao mostrar as luvas mal tratadas.
