Gingers is a series of beautiful portraits of gingers around the world, from America through Europe, on to the Middle East and Asia, explores and celebrates the flow of DNA across cultures and generations.
In the run-up to the 2014 independence referendum, artist Kieran Dodds began photographing people with the rarest form of hair colour – ginger. Kieran, himself ‘a ginger’, 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. Initially focusing on his homeland of Scotland where 13 percent of the population have ginger hair, he has since expanded the project to other hotspots of red hair around the world.
