100 beautiful portraits of 'ginger people', my third photo book with RED! portraits. Natural redheads always fascinate me. They are about to be extinct some day in the future. I want to capture their beauty before they are.
Experiment: getting under their skin. What will happen when I use infrared light and eliminate all colour. Will wreckles vanish? How pale will their skin get? What happens to 'red' colours when turned into infra-red?
The first part of the book are the infrared portraits, then halfway the book turn book upside down and compare the colour portraits, same sequence.
I am what we in Holand call a 'real people-photographer', so I am specialized in portraits and documentary photography. Check my personal website www.mery.com for more fine art photos.
