'Perhaps the old monks were right when they tried to root love out; perhaps the poets are right when they try to water it. It is a blood-red flower, with the color of sin; but there is always the scent of a God about it.'
Last September, FH slid into the woods with a version of Red shot by photographer Ken from FIBK. In that series, (All the Better to Eat you With) our Red was incredibly sexy Ua, Ken's version of the classic fairy tale character Little Red Riding Hood. Ua's Red didn't wear much, just the classic blood red cape, and an impressively sized loaf of bread.
Ken's series with Ua was one of my favorite set of images to feature last year. I loved the concept, the story idea and Ken's erotically playful images of the beautiful Ua. Going back to Ken's work for another feature was a pleasure, and although I didn't initially intend it, I was again enticed and drawn to the Redd.
Red, isn't the only connection between Ua and ultra hot and furry chested Redd. Ua and Redd are actually friends, and it was Ua who connected Redd with Ken for a shoot. Ua not only introduced Redd to Ken, and subsequently to FH, he also introduced Redd to the world of stripping.
'Redd was easy and fun to work with! Quiet and very laid back and relaxed during the shoot.'
Redd has only been taking it all off for about a year, and was looking for some shots to help promote his work. If the goal of promotion is to have the viewer want to see more, Ken's images of Redd are a soaring success. If I were in Ohio, I would definitely be on the hunt for a big helping of Redd meat.
Redd's passions include dancing, both on and off the stage, and working on keeping his body in top shape. Redd will showing off more of the results of all of his hard work in another shoot with Ken next month. Hopefully Ken will share a little more Redd in the future!
