Head shots of hand models (with banana for scale)


Ad executive Alex Holder teamed with photographer Oli Kellett to show the faces behind prominent hand models. Federico Hewson (above) said:

I had always been told I had nice hands. My uncle was a photographer, and when the recession hit, he got creative and said, "How about modelling those hands?"

Castings are weird. At least with acting auditions, you know whether you did a good job. When you don't get the job, you think: was it my pinkie?

The Guardian covered the project in detail.

Nina Taylor: "I call myself a hand specialist, but I got the label "supermodel" because after a while I got every single casting."
