His goal is to highlight the beauty and uniqueness of this unusual hair color. Only 2% of people have this flaming hair color which is generated by both parents carrying the recessive MC1R gene. Even if both parents inherit the gene their descendants have a 25% chance of having red hair.

Many people identify red hair with Scotland and Ireland which have 13% and 10% of the world's natural redheads respectively, but Dowling's journey throughout the world demonstrates that they come from many nations. Each woman proudly displays her locks, as well as other traits such as freckles and pale complexion that redheads are known for.

Dowling is compiling his work for the art book Redhead Beauty which will be released following a successful Kickstarter campaign. The photographer adds that the photos were taken without the use of a cosmetic artist, special lighting, or excessive Photoshop. Dowling states, "I wanted it to be evident that these photographs are true representations of the model and that people stop stereotyping redheads."

Brian Dowling spent three years shooting over 130 redheads from 20 different nations.
