Redheads aims to celebrate natural red heads in Ireland through a series of photos,showing the beauty and diversity of red hair, in the hope that the admiration for these unique features will encourage a deeper appreciation towards natural red hair. There are stereotypes with every hair colour, and there is a lot of bullying involved too, and I wish girls embraced their uniqueness.While taking her portrait, one of my subjects told me “I used to hate the colour of my hair when I was a child, other kids used to call me names.As I grew old older,I learned to accept it.Now I love being different."
