Hands in Harmony is an exploration of folk music and traditional handcrafts by acclaimed photographer Tim Barnwell, author of The Face of Appalachia (W.W. Norton, 2003) and On Earth’s Furrowed Brow (W.W. Norton, 2007). Eighty evocative black and white portraits are combined with biographies and oral history interviews with each subject, celebrating those involved in the music and craft communities in and around the southern Appalachian region. Drawn from a thirty-year photographic career, Barnwell's portraits speak to the beauty and uniqueness of the handmade object, and their creators, and the musical heritage carried forward by those performing the original folk songs of this region. These traditions, handed down through generations, connect us to our cultural roots and provide a unique regional identity.
