Hands & Faces

My favourite board, without question. Pictures I wish I had taken, and would aspire to take one day. Faces that inspire. Eyes that tell stories. Hands that speak to the soul. A jigsaw of our world.

Housewife Aida is pictured crying while recovering from severe injuries she received when her house was shelled by the Syrian Army. Her husband and two children were fatally wounded during the shelling. The photograph was taken by Argentina's Rodrigo Abd for the Associated Press news agency.

During World War II, Irena Sendler worked in the Warsaw Ghetto as a plumbing specialist. She spent most of her days there helping to smuggle Jewish children out before it was too late. Infants were often carried in the bottom of the toolbox she used and older children were often hidden in a burlap sack she kept in the back of her truck. It has been reported that Irena managed to smuggle and save about 2,500 children overall.
