About the Book
A Head With Hair is a short collection of photographs that visually represent people wearing their hair in different shapes, sizes and color. It is my first book and only the beginning of a much larger exploration of hair culture from around the globe.
It seems like everyone has some hair somewhere, and does something to it. Surrounding Hair are concepts regarding beauty, identity, gender, race and socio-economics. As a fine art photographer and hair dresser Chelsea DeVere is interested in documenting hair and those who wear it. Hair styles reference the past, present and future, always changing in shape, size and color; a medium we use in many different ways to transform ourselves, stand out, or blend in.
