About this artwork

In Scotland, thirteen percent of us have ginger hair – including photographer Kieran Dodds. In the run up to the 2014 Scottish independence referendum he started photographing people with the rarest hair colour. He was interested in this cliché of Scottish national identity and wanted to show that even within this small group there is a huge diversity of appearance. He has since expanded the series Gingers to other hotspots of red hair around the world.
