WHAT THE CAMERA SAW / THE WEEK AND MORE

My Brother's Keeper

January 06, 1998

It's part of the social contract that we all take care of one another. Laura Hunt, 6, cradles cousin Katie Garnett, 6 months, while waiting in line at a Torrance post office. At Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center, nurse attendant Pat Zweizig hugs Gloria Flores, 5. And in South-Central Los Angeles, Lewis Willis, right, gives friend Kevin Johnson a trim.

SIGN LANGUAGE

Hands can convey a number of meanings, depending on the context. Gaily decorated handprints fill the window of a Canoga Park school. Occupants of a car rigged to trap car thieves raise their hands in surrender during a Long Beach police sting. And a goalie for the UC Irvine women's soccer team gets her wrist taped before a game.
