More than 300 photo sessions were held on two continents to create the series of portraits by Stewart Cohen collected in SEEING RED, a stunning and arresting volume of photography.
Each portrait has been styled in a way that shows how an extinct species might be displayed for posterity. Cohen describes his concept: “I began thinking about how fascinating it would be to memorialize as many redheads as possible. I photographed each subject in an elegant, tufted shadow box – a visual allegory for redheads facing extinction. Once the word spread that I was shooting redheads, I had an overwhelming response from gingers around the world – each wanting to be immortalized as a part of the project. Three hundred portraits later, I’ve developed a real affinity for them.”
Award-winning commercial director/photographer Stewart Cohen is the principal of SCPictures (Stewart Cohen Pictures), a full-service production company in Dallas that creates end-to-end live-action and still photography content.
