Red Hot II: Andreas Holm-Hansen, 2017

Red Hot II: Andreas Holm-Hansen, 2017

Red Hot is a new photographic exhibition by esteemed British photographer Thomas Knights. He first rose to public attention in 2014 with his book of the same name, intended to celebrate the uniqueness of the much-maligned ‘ginger’ – often a subject of derision in popular culture. In the book he represents redheads as subjects of contemporary art and universal beauty.

For the second exhibition of his work, Knights has collaborated with British Designer Elliott James Frieze to complete a new series of photographs that present redheads stylised as Greek sculptures or in the Baroque tradition, emulating the chiarosucro effect found prominently in Caravaggio paintings.

The image in this lot also features as the cover image of the duo’s recent coffee table book entitled Red Hot II.

This showpiece art photograph has been produced and framed to the highest professional standards by Metro Imaging London.
