HAND JOBS: LIFE AS A HAND MODEL

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. They adorn huge billboards. Their five fingers are insured for seven figure sums. Some are classed as supermodels. But you’ve never seen their faces.

Until now.
