MC1R Magazine #4
Aus einem Fotografieprojekt von Tristan Rodgers ist das Magazin MC1R hervorgegangen und beschäftigt sich mit Menschen, deren Haar rot ist. Tristan Rodgers interviewte und fotografierte Rothaarige. Gleich zu Beginn des Projektes stellte sich heraus, dass es genau so viel kostet 20 Magazine zu drucken wie 500. So wurde ein Crowdfounding Kapagne gestartet und herauskam dieses spannende Magazin, welches mittlerweile die vierte Ausgabe herausgebracht hat.
In first there was the idea to realize a photography project with a few friends who all had red hair. After a few weeks Tristan Rodgers interviewed and photographed a few more people and got a few interesting points of view on this topic. Out of interest Tristan Rodgers looked into how much it would cost to print a few private copies of this collected work as a small magazine for the people who have been part of this project.
It turned out that the print costs for 20 easy printed copies was very close to 500 copies in offset print, so Tristan decided to start a crowdfunding campaign to see whether anyone else would be interested in reading something like this and there have been enough preorders to realize the idea.
The founder Tristan Rodgers is 31 years old, resident in Hamburg, Germany and he has red hair. He is a student for lighting design and colorimetry and interested in photography and art. The official name is »Melanocortin 1 Receptor«. MC1R is one of the key proteins in regulating pigment production in human hair and skin. This comes in many variants and some of them lead to red hair. So this is why it’s often called »the red hair gene«.
And now is the fourth issue available with interviews, projects, art and photographs from: Lily Cole, Larsen Thompson, Maja Topcagic, Madeline Stuart, Seth Fornea, Tim Lahan, Hattie Watson, Ethen Gulley, Gerald Larocque, Pawel Wylaq, David Moon, Drew Goldberg, Adrienne and Stephanie Vendetti, Barry Singleton, Lydia Janis Caldana, Christian Bendel, Loulou Aherne, Amanda Kubiak, Patricia Paryz, Lorenz Hartwig, Sebastian Zimmerhackl, Carlina Aring, Lucie Langer, Leonie Langer and many more!
