Creative duo of photographers Oli Kellet and Alex Holder managed to create one of the most stunning campaigns in the UK over the last decade. After working for many years with people who provide their hands for photography, photographers decided to show the faces of those who own these model hands.

Of course, I had to change some homework habits, for example, I used to work in my car earlier, but I had to If I know that in the next few days I will be shooting, I stop all sorts of garden and garden work at home.
