THE RED HAIR SERIES

The red haired series grew out of my research with the accompanying "gray hair" series. I have been curious about the overlap of the different races of people as yet another form of helping people to overcome racism. Part of this short visual essay is to provide some insight to my own personal opinion that the overall human condition trumps the racist attitudes that some people seem to have to some extent.

It is possible that the majority of people have some degree of red in their hair based on the fact that brown hair is a variation of red hair. As I continue to add some research to this series, I will continue to publish some factual examples. Unlike the "gray hair" series, that cuts across perceived racial lines, it is sometimes difficult to always determine what I consider to be an authentic "redhead" since many people have red hair by choice. Some people may already be aware of the mistaken perception of the "Red Head" as a fiery and temperamental person.
