Click to preview infra RED photo book

Natural redheads always fascinate me. They are about to be extinct some day in the future. I want to capture their beauty before they are.

Have a look at 100 beautiful portraits of 'ginger people', my third photo book with RED portraits.

Experiment: I used the infrared technique and eliminated all colour. Asking myself: will wreckles vanish? How pale will their skin get? What happens to 'red' in infra-red?

The first part of the book are the portraits in infraRED, turn the book upside down and compare the colour photos, same sequence.
