women working


I’m fascinated by the tools, machines, and accoutrements used by people who work with their hands. I love the sewing machines, tailor’s boards, bobbins and bits in tailor’s shops. The knives and wooden spoons, pots and graters, new and old appliances in a well-appointed kitchen are fascinating. Jeweler’s hammers, files, and casting tools are beautiful. Almost any artist’s studio, full of the stuff and smells of their art, is magical. I just happened to see this Sephora employee using her hand as a palette for lipstick. The colors are as intense as the oil paints my mother used. That’s what I’ll always love about fashion, makeup, styling; it’s all beauty.
