Jenny Wicks: Root Ginger
Are redheads actually fiery? Are they a dying breed? Photographer Jenny Wicks answers these questions and more with her in-depth examination of red hair's history, what having ginger hair means in society and how it biologically occurs.
Beginning with a personal curiosity, Wicks' survey expanded into a full-on investigation. Along with her collection of photographs of 70 stunning redheads, she wrote a corresponding book that provides insight into the myths about gingers and includes the photographs from the exhibition and a 20 minute film. All of the proceeds from the various mediums go to the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, and the book is available for purchase from Amazon UK.
