Sally Wiener Grotta on the American Hands Project


Just because you didn’t get to go to that awesome photography conference doesn’t mean that you can’t learn something from the pros! Occasionally, we’ll be featuring a recommended photography lecture or interview on Phototuts+.

This interview from Focus on Pennsylvania takes a look at the ongoing project by Sally Wiener Grotta called American Hands. She is documenting people who are preserving old arts and trades. In this interview, she specifically talking about her work in Pennsylvania in which she photographed basket makers and quilters.
