'I collect gingers' exhibition by Anthea Pokroy


Pokroy, who began her collection in August 2010, photographed her subjects in a studio with stark lighting and white clothing. She also shot close-ups of hair, skin and eyes and took a strand of hair from each of them.

As her work progressed she began to arrange the 'gingers' into a more sophisticated classification system. This included colour divisions like copper, burnt orange, light orange and auburn.
