It all started in 1993, when Buhl gained a Alfred Stieglitz 1920 photograph of Georgia O’Keeffe’s hands. This photo jump-started what is now the largest photograph collection based around ‘hands’. The topic may seem mundane but this exhibit may change your mind. We can thank curator, James Cavello, for his articulate way of showcasing Henry Buhl’s precious collection. Cavello makes it a point to shine a light on the metaphor of hands and their language.
