They moisturise 30 times a day. They know 200 different ways to pick up a Lego brick. They can method act with a Ferrero Rocher. They’re the only people who get paid as much for cleaning a toilet as they do for modelling a diamond. These hand models are the stars of the biggest advertising campaigns around but you’ve never seen their faces…until now. Hand Jobs: Life as a Hand Model offers 24 revealing portraits, 24 hilarious quotes and 24 ways to peel a banana.

This is Book 3 in a series that celebrates the best in colourful, modern photography.

As an 11-year-old Oli Kellett took a photo of a flower which his granny bought for £5. Feeling like he had hit the big time, he continued to take photos in the hope that he would soon be able to retire early. Twenty or so years later, Oli is still taking photos, both commercially and for longer-term projects. He is no way near retiring. 

Alex Holder is a Partner at advertising agency Anomaly London. Her projects often make worldwide press and range from a photographic recreation of Mills & Boon romance covers (shot with Oli Kellett), to the political ‘Make Them Pay’ campaign that sought to end the pay gap between men and women with Elle magazine. It earned 83 million hits and backing from the Prime Minister.
