Since April 2013, The Hand Magazine has published hundreds of images from some of the most interesting contemporary artists working in reproductionbased media. The Hand is dedicated to the promotion of handmade images that utilize techniques invented for and generally thought of as being mechanical in nature. In addition to exploring this paradox, The Hand seeks to unite the photographic and print communities and give a new audience to established practitioners of these arts. The Hand reaches out to established and emerging artists alike, in an effort to recognize the history of handmade reproduction as well as the future.
