This masterful suite of portraits by one of the most acclaimed photographers in America is a celebration of all redheaded people, young and old, male and female. For more than ten years Joel Meyerowitz has been captivated by their aesthetic allure — as if he were a fisherman, he writes in the introduction to this book, finding rare tropical fish. Intrigued by the shared genetic features of redheads, as well as by what they have described to him as their common spiritual bond, Meyerowitz has sought them out in places — on the beach, at nightclubs — where they most disarmingly reveal their features and personalities. Although redheads represent perhaps two percent of the population of the United States — and therefore a tremendous variety of people — these pictures (most of them seen here for the first time) suggest that the individuals share a thread of looks and emotions.
