Redheads’ blazing, fiery locks always make them stand out in a crowd, and it is this element of their appearance that Maja Topčagić, a photographer in Bosnia-Herzegovina, focuses on in her beautiful redhead portraits. The vivid colors and bright flowers make the girls in Topčagić’s photos seem like mystical summer spirits.
Red hair is the rarest natural hair color in the world (1-2% of the human population has read hair), so it’s understandable why they can seem so striking to some of us. The genetic mutation that causes red hair also causes a host of other changes as well – redheads have a higher pain tolerance, are more difficult to anaesthetize, and are more susceptible to ultraviolet light.
Topčagić’s redhead portraits are eye-catching, but she doesn’t just take photos of redheads – she is an accomplished beauty photographer who has photos of all sorts on her 500px account. Check out the rest of her work below!
