Lebanese photographer Omar Reda, about whom we have already told you, decided to collect in one photo project pictures of the palms of different people whom he met during his travels in Africa and Asia. The hands of representatives of various tribes tell amazing stories. We see how their profession, occupation and age leave their mark on them.

"Hands have always fascinated me. I think they summarize our life path. I'm not talking about reading fate in the palm of your hand and knowing the future of different people. It's about how the path of each of us is dotted with patterns and shapes our hands.

They are like eyes, they tell about what is hidden under the surface. They are a fundamental part of our evolution and survival. Primitive people used them to light a fire, hunt, fight and for other actions aimed at survival.

The hands are the main part of the body that helps us improve our skills in all types of production from the very beginning of time. The lines on the palm of your hand show the hidden truth about our life. They reveal our struggle, burden, status and the path of life that we have chosen, " says Omar Reda about the project.

In a series of images that continues to be updated, Reda tried to capture the details of the hands of people from different countries, with different lifestyles, representatives of different tribes, villages and cities. "It was not easy to ask people for permission to take these pictures. It was very difficult. Many people called me an idiot, a madman, an undercover police officer who is trying to get fingerprints, etc., " the photographer admits. Omar Reda believes that this is his best series, and one of his favorite pictures is the hand of a three — year-old boy from the Maasai tribe (pictured).
