"The pocket keeps the hands away from the body and from each other. It gives the hands a place to be."
Darian Leader

Pocket Book is a small photobook dedicated to pockets. Composed solely of images of hands resting in pockets, a childishly simple proposition unfolds into a rich display of colour, line, texture and narrative suggestion. Trapped within clothes and the close confines of the pages themselves, the abstracted hands tuck themselves away from the camera’s interrogative gaze. Pocket Book seeks to occupy a reader’s roaming and restless hands.
