Brian Dowling, an American photographer, traveled the world to capture the beauty of redheads. Brian travels to over 20 countries to share stories and photographs about redheads, by redheads, and topics to inspire people with the MC1R gene all over the world.
Red hair is the world’s rarest hair color, caused by a gene mutation known as MC1R, which affects about 1% of the world’s population. This gene mutation can also affect a person’s pain tolerance, sun sensitivity, and the ability of their hair to gray. When you get older, your red hair will turn blonde or pure white.
