Photographer Alexandra Bochkareva is the author of the project dedicated to red-haired and freckled people called “Redheads’ Stories.” She wanted to show their unique and rare beauty to the world through her whimsical photos.
Bochkareva loves matching redheads and animals together for her magical photographs. In her recent work, each image captures the connection of the unique pairs and illustrates her passion for including animals into her work.
“Within the last two years I’ve been lucky to work with other animals,” Bochkareva told My Modern Met. “There are huskies, rabbits, raccoons, owls, Maine Coons, snakes, foxes, horses, and lynx.”
These animals are genuinely symbolic, bringing her ideas to life and she believes that having red hair is more than just a genetic attribute.
“Red hair color is very special for me,” Bochkareva said, “and I think, it’s not only about a bright color; it’s about a state of mind.”
