A wonderfully evocative insight into the complex lives of people across Asia
Full Description
The Asia Unique series of books highlights the extraordinary diversity of Asia by focusing on one specific topic, photographed in its amazing variety by some of the finest travel photographers currently covering Asia. Throughout the books, inspirational quotes and proverbs from Asia, related to the specific book topic, compliment the stunning images.

A Chinese proverb says: "A helping hand makes a happy heart". Hands are expressions of ourselves, measures by which we may be understood. Stretched out in acceptance or clenched in defiance, hands communicate our emotions. Weathered in the fields or immaculately manicured in the salon, they also reflect our lifestyles. Hands caress, pray, fight, dance, labor, greet, hug, hold, gesture, and help. Looking at hands across Asia is a journey of discovery, of stories untold. Asia Unique takes you by the hand to bring you the richness of this fascinating continent.

Hands highlights the extraordinary diversity and character of hands across Asia, captured in 135 stunning color photographs and enriched by inspirational Asian quotes and proverbs related to hands.
About the Author
Hans Kemp first arrived in Asia in 1986 at the start of what turned out to be an 18-month sojourn before finally taking the Trans Siberian train from Beijing back to the Netherlands. The nomadic bug had firmly entrenched itself however and Hans soon found himself back in Asia guiding groups across the Karakoram Highway from Northern Pakistan into China's Xinjiang province and onwards into Tibet. Establishing a base in Hong Kong in the early 1990s allowed Hans to develop his photography skills, traversing and capturing Asia in iconic images published in a wide variety of international magazines and books. He pioneered the creation of quality postcards in Vietnam and stood at the cradle of Visionary World Publishers in Hong Kong. Hans is an award-winning photographer of several books. His most successful book Bikes of Burden, depicting the motorbike culture in Vietnam, has sold over eighty thousand copies and, besides the original English edition, is published in a German, a Japanese and a French version.
