        Hi there,
        My name is Annie, I am one of the most ginger people you will ever meet. My fiery red hair is a beacon of light when all other lights are out.
        I am from London (where I am well know to be called the grated carrot), when I am casually walking around London I have strangers (mostly tourists) come up to me asking for a photo, normally I say yes being the polite girl that I am. But I must admit it all this paparazzi is tiering after a while.
        Anyway, enough about my story. Its all about ‘I collect gingers.’ I really want to get involved, have my photo posted, I am ginger in mind body and soul, ginger until I die.
        Together we can populate the world.

        Love you all

  9. Marilyn 21/06/2011 at 01:01 #

    As a ginger I think awareness is fantastic. I would be prepared to contribute if interested.

  15. Redhead Fitzgerald 22/09/2011 at 20:11 #

    Although gentlemen prefer blondes (why!) manly-men go for red!

  16. Cat 23/09/2011 at 11:18 #

    Your mom just spoke to me in the gym…she saw my little red headed boy (18 months) and said I should get in contact with you!

    (I’m also strawberry blonde. ;o)

  20. Hettie 25/10/2011 at 06:03 #

    My son, Julian, is 20 years old with the most beautiful ginger hair (which he doesn’t think is that cool). He studies graphic design and I just think the red hair suits his ‘arty’ personality – just like you. I would love to send in a photograph of him!

  21. Arona Becker 10/11/2011 at 11:02 #

  23. Barbara 04/01/2012 at 21:22 #

    I belong to the group of gingers if you need another head to photograph.

  24. Megan Swarts 06/01/2012 at 14:30 #

    I think that all gingers suffer from a very rare disease called “gingerlitus” which causes us to be even MORE awesome than the average person :):)

  25. Sarah Faye 19/01/2012 at 16:22 #

    Hi Anthea,

    I m a ginger and I have a 6 year old cousin who is also a ginger.
    If you need more heads of ginger, I will be happy to help.

    All the best

  26. Gill Barbour 20/01/2012 at 07:27 #

  28. Kaity churchyard 20/01/2012 at 15:18 #


    I heard you talking on 5fm yesterday. And you said you were planning on touring the country this year to collect gingers. You should make a stop at Rhodes University, which has a large amount of gingers. And as a ginger I’d just like to say that I really approve of your work.

  29. Natalie 26/01/2012 at 19:50 #

    Hi Anthea,

    My brother was listening to 5FM in Cape Town and heard your talk about gingers. I am a ginger, but live in Nelspruit, Mpumalanga. If you are ever down this way I am willing to photographed.

    Kind regards

  35. Claudine 12/06/2012 at 08:43 #


    I am a natural curly REDHEAD in PE – let us know when you are in PE would love to be apart of this great Initiative!!

  36. Anthea Poole 12/06/2012 at 10:41 #

    i have seen some stunning re-heads in my life, which drew me to take a peek at what you have here. the most striking thing about your collection of photos is, unfortunately, that they all look so SAD!!!!!! it would be so much more of a testament if there were more happy faces

  37. Anthea Poole 12/06/2012 at 10:41 #

    sorry, i meant red-heads

  38. Julie Mundy 12/06/2012 at 18:26 #

    Hi there,
    I think your collection is lovely. Let me Know if you would like my 13yr olds pic. Gorgeous boy, with mop of red hair, freckles and big green eyes.

    I’ve got a daughter who has dark red hair and she is half Asian! (I’m Korean) Her dad was once a red head when he was little.. Hope she stays like this..Facebook name is Ann Lim Rich

  41. JULIE 26/06/2012 at 20:25 #


  42. Kerryne Krause-Neufeldt 05/07/2012 at 15:19 #

    This is fabulous! Was so teased at school and then discovered at University onward everyone was dying their hair red! Never understood that but proud to be who I am. Would participate if you needed more.

  43. Jolene Brink 10/07/2012 at 09:19 #

    Hi Anthea,

    I have a 1 year old daughter (will be 2 in Sept) and she has ginger hair. I am keen to have you take her photo’s. Please let me know how we go about this.

    Thanks so much,


  44. Dan 12/11/2012 at 21:16 #

    Our own redhead women will make sure we will go extinct. They got to much chooise in men. So why would they choose for a redhead men. Its a womens chooise to have a redhead baby or not. Redhead men are only 1% of the world and redhead man that are sexual potent {old men,children and so}, are even less as 1% of the worlds men. Spermbanks disscriminate in not taking red hairs men sperm in their banks. So this will reduce our numbers even more by time. Unless redhead women and redhead men start looking for eachother. We really will go extinct.

  45. Cassie Bush 27/11/2012 at 15:33 #

    hello im a ginger collec me and my 14 year old sister 🙂

  46. Hetty Openshaw 25/01/2013 at 10:42 #

    Hi my grandson is a ginger . Are you looking for more gingers?

  47. Eric Atmore 29/01/2013 at 22:00 #

    Please is the exhibit coming to Cape Town?

  48. Aricci 15/03/2013 at 17:49 #

    Love the photos….but one question….why weren’t there any African Americans featured….you might not know it, but there ARE plenty of “black gingers” out there too!

  49. bcole 15/03/2013 at 22:02 #

    I am an old ginger with lots of gray hair. However, my daughter is 1/4 Asian (Korean) and yet with red hair and brown eyes. Would you like a picture? We have one of her at three years of age that is very cute. She’s still very cute but now 21. There is a slight Asian look in her eyes accompanying her gorgeous head of hair.

  50. Tabatha jones 16/03/2013 at 00:46 #

    My 4 year old daughter has ginger hair and people stop us constantly to say how beautiful it is… To read a positive story like this is great and I’d love to show her these photos… your work is fabulous ♥

  51. Alice Thwaites 16/03/2013 at 02:25 #

    I’d love to be ‘collected’!! (I’m ginger and proud, obviously)

    Also, I recommend Tim Minchin’s song ‘Prejudice’ to all of you, I’m sure you’ll love it (and him) as much as me! 🙂

  52. Anna 16/03/2013 at 02:43 #

    You should come to the UK, there are thousands of us here 🙂 It’s a really cool idea

  53. Elizabeth McGee 16/03/2013 at 10:50 #

    My daughter was born in Cape Town in 1980 and we were given a certificate stating that she was a “White Person”………as I told my husband that is untrue she has red hair and freckles ;-)) I am from Scotland and my husband is Irish ….I expected a wonderful red head ;-))

    • Gracie Novikoff 17/03/2013 at 01:56 #

      Being a ginger is half of my identity, and it makes me so happy that you are honoring gingers across the globe. I would love to be a part of this!!

  54. Me 16/03/2013 at 21:55 #

    Ginger have no souls

  55. Emily Pollack 18/03/2013 at 06:00 #

    People tell me all the time that I look like Merida (from Disney Pixar’s Brave) and it make my day. My brother and mother are both gingers and my friends call me Gingy. I have always wanted to be a part of the Weasley family. My cat is a ging (her name is Sexy Sadie because, hey, gingers are pretty damn sexy) I love my hair, an my pale-milky-freckled-easily-burned-never-tan skin.

    Go team Carrot Tops!

  56. Rebecca Lazar 19/03/2013 at 05:33 #

    Dear Anthea,

    I’m a ginger and tried dying my hair a dark brown once. Worst mistake I’ve ever made. I have grown to love my hair color, especially since you can’t find it in a bottle or in a salon. If you ever have a chance to photograph in the U.S. or Canada, I would love to be a part of your project.

    I feel that my hair color gives me a superpower that most people don’t have.


  57. Natalia 22/03/2013 at 00:59 #

    I’d like to sent a picture of me!!!

    I’m from Brazil and I’m ginger with proud!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    How can I send my picture to you???

    Loved your work!!!!!!!

  58. Annie Hammel 25/03/2013 at 18:18 #

    We got you covered in DC, NY, and Chicago. Just let me know

  59. Judy Tetour 26/03/2013 at 20:28 #

    I love, love, love your site! I wish I could be one of your collection and hope you will be in the Chicago area taking pictures soon. I have two adult ginger children to add to the collection as well, though so far they have not produced ginger children of their own (but it IS a recessive gene, so perhaps the next generation). I only wish my father and his three ginger siblings were still alive. I always wished there was a group shot of the four of them in color.

  60. Heidi K 29/03/2013 at 19:03 #

    Hello from a San Francisco ginger!
    Great project 🙂
    Let me know if you want my pic

  61. John L. 30/03/2013 at 14:00 #

    I am an artist living in Colorado. Love what you are doing. Being a red head myself I was lucky to find my red headed wife. Now we have three red-headed beautiful girls. Just trying to re-populate the world with more Gingers. If you are still collecting, let us know.

  62. Clare Roper 30/03/2013 at 16:42 #

    Hey are you still looking for gingers?

  74. Bronwen 16/02/2014 at 18:56 #

    I am a red head!
    I think what you are doing is fantastic. I have never been bullied for my hair colour but I know people who have and I know how horrible and demeaning it can be. However I feel that you can only be bullied for something as small as your hair colour if you are not confident in how you look. If you are uncomfortable with yourself then people can see that and exploit those feelings. I believe that what you are doing is raising awareness for the natural beauty of red heads everywhere and helping people feel confident and satisfied with who they are.
    Thank you.
    Ps: I would love to be a part of it but I live in Liverpool so it might be a bit tricky, do you do tours?

  75. annita petry 28/04/2014 at 17:54 #

    We really cried a lot…
    I don`t miss my old days like everybody do because It`s not easy to be different.
    I live in Brasil and here I`m very peculiar.
    Congratulations for your beatiful work!

  76. Tammie 23/06/2014 at 20:14 #

    I am a GINGER, can I get my mugshot into your project? It’s awesome (your project, not my mug. My mug is ok)

  77. Andrew Hall 04/09/2014 at 00:24 #

    If you are ever in California, US there are many of us ready to be collected!

    Hi, we have a 18month old son who is a ginger. As well as 2 cousins, one a girl 19, the other a boy 24.
    Would love to have our son photographed by yourself.

  80. Keyieva 29/03/2015 at 13:41 #

    I want to be collected. I live in the Netherlands. Can I sent you a picture?

  81. Isabella M 29/04/2015 at 00:09 #

    Hey! This is one of the coolest websites ever! I’m a ginger with curly hair from CANADA! Hopefully someday I can be apart of your collection?! It would be pretty great!

  82. Jenn 05/11/2015 at 21:32 #

    I am a true Ginger and have a few gingers not only as siblings but as nieces, nephews and cousins. If you are still looking. We have a whole crew of Gingers.

  83. Purty Red 02/12/2015 at 03:45 #

    I have seen some recent posts on Facebook, but no updated messages here.
    I just wondered, as others have also asked, if you are still active?
    Love your work!
    ~Just another curious ginger.
