From Library Journal
Meyerowitz is best known as a photographer with brilliant control of color. That skill and his inspired compositions have made him one of our most important contemporary photographers and one of this reviewer's favorites. But this collection of more than 60 portraits of people who are redheads is empty. Though his introductory essay is self-congratulatory regarding the project and its capturing of the way redheads look, Meyerowitz's book looks like an idea born in the euphoria of a sunny Cape Cod day, published because of the artist's high recognition. As a gift to your favorite redhead--fine. As a library acquisition--not recommended.
- David Bryant, Belleville P.L., N.J.

The one drawback to this collection of photographs is the fact the almost all of the models are facing the camera straight-on but the variety of facial expressions, outdoor settings, and hair styles makes up for what is lacking in composition diversity.

I knew I needed this book for my own facination with redheads which strangley enough is one of my goals to marry one.
The entire book has some very interesting people from other continents. Such beautiful women and men as well.
this book is a mild plus.
But Bryant blows it in his critique with shoddy reviewing. The redheads in the panoramic foldout of the book were gathered on a nice summer day in Dana Point, California, NOT on Cape Cod. I know because I gathered the subjects, including myself, for the shoot. That blows away his toss-off comment "Meyerowitz's book looks like an idea born in the euphoria of a sunny Cape Cod day, published because of the artist's high recognition."
The book was created by one of the most talented photographers ever in the color scheme stream... and that foldout in "Redheads" ended up as a very large photographic mural in the NY Museum of Modern Art. Myself and 16 other redheads are very proud for participating, and the book is absolutely a work of beauty and wonder of humanity.
The text at the beginning of the book gives a clear insight into the mind of a photographic artist, and how and why a project is created.
This is not a technical how to book, this is a book that will deepen you sense of artistic creation.
