It was in 1978, during my first summer of making portraits while using an 8×10 inch large format camera, that I found myself drawn to photographing redheads. I have often been asked ‘why redheads,’ and I’ve felt it was because in summer redheads seem to bloom in the sun more gloriously than the rest of us. But it also might have been my living on the tip of Cape Cod, surrounded by the blue light of sea and sky, which made me pay more attention to the flamboyant qualities of redheads. Their hair and the exotic markings of their skin in sunlight became even rosier and more astonishing in that blue atmosphere. It seems natural to me now that I would have paid attention to this new phenomenon as it appeared within the larger subject of the Cape itself. After making more than 50 portraits that first month, in which at least 30 were of redheads, I understood that this was an impulse to be taken seriously.
