The first 'roodharigendag' in Breda, the Netherlands was held in 2007. In 2005 there was a similar, but much smaller event in an art gallery in Asten, where organisor Bart Rouwenhorst had an exhibition of his paintings of red (ginger) women. When working with him on promotion photos for the first Breda redheadday, I came up with the idea of Red-On-Red.

During the 2007 event five big pieces (90x140 cm) of Red-On-Red art were shown in the Grote Kerk (Cathedral) of Breda, the heart of the annual event ever since. In the Belcrum I was able to create my own outdoor Red-On-Red studio @ Electron, and over a 100 redheads had their portrait taken 2 September 2007.

This e-book is to celebrate the beauty of being blessed with red hair. I am proud that I was one of the Breda artists from the start, who gave people with red hair a reason to be proud, very proud!

In 2008 we created 'Medusa'
infraRED was made in 2010
2011 & 2012 books will be out later this year is the 2007 Red-On-Red original book, also showing behind the scenes and event photos
