“I call myself a hand specialist, but I got the label ‘supermodel’ because after a while I got every single casting. I’d get things done in one take every time. My hands were insured for a seven-figure sum.

The hands are the first part of the body to show signs of aging, so I’m branching out now.”

“The first time I went to a hand casting, it was a very strange, existential experience. They seriously examined my hands. One of them went, “‘oh, there’s a tiny freckle.’ I might as well not have been there. It’s an oddly abstract thing; when you’re not a person or a face, you just stay silent….

Some of the photographers are so used to doing still lives, they forget there’s a person getting tired or hungry at the end of these arms.”
