Red Heads Unite!

Goldfields Exhibit Celebrates Red Hair

Red Heads Unite!

A pop-up exhibition celebrating the scarcity and beauty of red hair will be launched at the end of this month in Kalgoorlie to coincide with the Heartwalk Festival.

Professional photographer Christy Stokes started the Red Gene Project to capture the personalities and beauty of the people who form just 2 per cent of the world’s population.

As well as celebrating the rarity of red hair, Stokes said the exhibition had a serious element to it because redheads were still being stigmatised.

The exhibition will feature about 140 images of Goldfields redheads and will be on display at Relish Cafe on Hannan Street from April 30-May 5.
