The Hands of Peace

The Hand of Peace. Photo by: Brian Kipp

I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph a dialogue between Thich Nhat Hanh and David Suzuki. Of course, I took many pictures of each of them, showing Thay’s gestures, expressions as well as his open and compassionate countenance.

Part way through the discussion I became aware of the separate dialogue that was going on in Thay’s hands. His hands spoke to me of peace, conviction and true empathy, reinforcing his powerful words. ByBrian Kipp

If we align ourselves with one side or the other, we will lose our chance to work for peace. Reconciliation requires understanding both sides in order to bring about peace.
