Joel Meyerowitz: Redheads

Text by Joel Meyerowitz.

Joel Meyerowitz: Redheads

An expanded edition of Meyerowitz’s acclaimed study of the many shades and styles of red hair

Photographer Joel Meyerowitz (born 1938) began photographing redheads in 1978 against the contrasting blue backdrop of Cape Cod. The portraits from this period are collected in this new edition of Meyerowitz's 1991 photobook Redheads, featuring 16 additional images. After running an ad in the Provincetown Advocate, Meyerowitz began collecting the experiences of people who grew up with red hair, in addition to photographing them. Making up only two or three percent of the world’s population, their stories of schoolyard bullying and self-acceptance illustrate a broader narrative of growth and beauty.
Despite cultural and racial distinctions between redheads, the phenotypic association between the subjects brings a sense of familiality to the collection of portraits.
Meyerowitz describes how red hair and its reaction to light evokes a sense of the color film process. He is known for his transition to color film during a period of resistance to color photography. “My way of making portraits is not by getting down on my hands and knees, nor climbing high on a ladder, nor getting into bed with a celebrity,” Meyerowitz writes, “but simply standing eye to eye with anyone who has found their way to me, young or old. I need only one or two sheets of film and the patience to see it through.” This hardcover edition includes previously unseen portraits.

A new, expanded edition of Joel Meyerowitz's 1991 photobook, 'Redheads'

A new, expanded edition of Joel Meyerowitz's 1991 photobook, 'Redheads'

“Daisy, Provincetown” (1980) is reproduced from Joel Meyerowitz: Redheads—a book that remains compelling no matter how many times you page through. “I feel that there are three transparent layers of truth to be seen at the moment of making a portrait,” Meyerowitz writes. “The first layer is what the camera sees; the indisputable record of the actual physical fact of the person who stands before me: what he, or she, or they, look like at this moment. The second layer of truth is mine. What do I perceive? I see a body coil and shift, expressions tremble and dissolve; while I wait for some signal from within so I can say yes to what I see. The third layer of truth is the presence behind the observable fact, the struggling human being who rises and subsides in front of the camera, like breath itself, or like the tides. I have seen that with patience and watchfulness there are moments when the three layers seem to align themselves, and it is then, in an instant, that the photograph is made.” continue to blog
