Kieran Dodds

from Gingers

Perm, Russia. 2017

In Scotland, one in eight Scots in Kieran Dodds' homeland are, like him, ginger. Perm - a fitting name - lies on the Kama river upstream from the Udmurt Republic in Russia, an area known as the heart of the world's other great ginger enclave. Ginger looms large in imaginations far beyond its heartlands. Walking around National Galleries Kieran was struck by the disproportionate number of paintings depicting ginger hair compared to its prevalence in the population outside. For some artists it is almost an obsession. Titian painted so many gingers he has a type of red named after him. From Boticelli and Cranach through to the pre-Raphaelites and Gustav Klimt, ginger and gingers have entranced artists for hundreds of years.

Kieran’s study Gingers transects eleven time zones, from the Americas through Europe, on to the Middle East and Asia. The people who bear the genes, who carry the hair, have unique histories. They occupy different political regions. But they are united by a golden – well, coppery, or rusty, as the Russians would say – thread: the flow of DNA across cultures and generations, a reminder that all people are made of the same substance, and sometimes it shows.

Kieran Dodds

Kieran Dodds is a non-fiction photographer known internationally for his research-driven photo stories and portraiture. His personal work looks at the interplay of environment and culture, tracing global events through daily lives.

A trained ecologist, Kieran is interested in ‘questions of being and doing’ ; in how humans live and how landscape functions as a crucible of culture. He has received grants to document Tibetan culture in flux, as pastoral nomads are resettled in highland China, and the role of spiritual beliefs in the global conservation movement. Living in Scotland, he has also focused on its recent political upheaval using the landscape to consider depictions and realities of Scottish identity through the centuries. 

Kieran’s work is held by the collection of the National Galleries of Scotland and has been shown at the Scottish Parliament and the Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg. His first book ‘Gingers’ was released in November 2020 closely followed by a softcover second edition. The book was one of Smithsonian Magazine’s Photography books of 2020.

When will I receive my print?

We produce prints in a batch every two weeks. Shipping can take up to one week in the UK, and two to three weeks internationally. Orders should be received within 3-5 weeks depending on your location.

What will I receive?

Your print will be posted flat, in a protective sleeve, to avoid damage or curling in transit. Prints come with a Panos Prints provenance certificate with background information about the image and the photographer. 

The paper is A4 sized, the image will be smaller than A4 with a white border around it - see Image Specification for exact image size.  Borders will be laid out as demonstrated by the print images on the site. We do not provide framing services and images of framed prints are only meant to be illustrative. 

Print Care

 

Paper and ink

We print on Hahnemuhle Baryta FB, an archival fibre based 350gsm fine art paper. It is a bright white paper with a traditional character finish and heavy weighting. This paper has long been the industry standard paper for digital printing.  

What is a giclée print?

Giclée comes from French and literally means ‘squirt’, referring to the spray of very fine drops of ink that produce an inkjet print. We print with archival paper and pigment inks to the accepted standards of fine art giclee printing found within the collectors market. Prints should last over a hundred years and with care longer than this. Avoiding extremes of light, heat and humidity will help prolong the life of your print.
