Red Hot II
By Thomas Knights & Elliott James Frieze
“Red Hot II” is a collaboration between British photographer Thomas Knights and British designer Elliott James Frieze, characterized with its rebranded midnight blue material background. “I felt there was more to say. Many of the redhead models we talked to not only had issues with their red hair growing up, but also with being pale. So, this exhibition and art book will explore the beauty of the redhead’s pale skin, it’s supposed fragility, and poetic appearance ... We will also look at the beauty of freckles as well as black and mixed-race redheads. We are taking the conversation further this time, celebrating what makes us redheads unique, learning to love that uniqueness and empowering ourselves by owning that difference,” says Thomas Knights, creator of the “Red Hot” project.
