The Hands

The 18-day Euro trip had its share of highlights, for sure, and maybe a couple lowlights. But getting to shoot this man, Mugniaini, was probably THE highlight. He has been a masseuse for Italian pro cyclists for over 30 years. The legs he’s rubbed include Moser, Saronni, Cipollini, and a cast of others. I was shooting as he administered a massage and once it was done I pulled him aside and asked if he’d stand for a portrait. He was completely amenable and the filtered natural light in the room allowed for an exceptional on-the-spot shooting opportunity. His face and eyes, amazing. You just never know when it’s going to happen, but it’s nice when it does.
