This event has ended.

A redhead herself, Baum uses her insight as a photographer and interest in the photographic portrait to investigate elements of what makes the red haired person so unique.

The project was initiated by a widely printed rumor that redheads are going extinct. While the rumor proved to be false, Baum began documenting her red haired subjects both as an exploration of portraiture (Baum had until then been a landscape photographer) and as a way of documenting and preserving the legacy of redheads.
