The MC1R Magazine is a magazine for redheads.
Here a small excerpt of its history:
The story of MC1R
Where did the idea for the magazine come from?
In first there was the idea to realize a photography project with a few friends who all had red hair. After a few weeks I interviewed and photographed a few more people and got a few interesting points of view on this topic. Out of interest I 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’ve 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 I 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 rest of the story you can find it on their site:
Frida Kahlo was a Mexican painter.
A terrible event, September 17, 1925, at the age of 18, his life changed dramatically and locked her in a deep loneliness that had only art as a uniquewindow on the world. The bus ended up crushed against a wall. The injuries werevery serious for Frida: if the spine broke in three places in the lumbar region; He shattered the femoral neck and ribs; the left leg reported 11 fractures; The right footwas dislocated and crushed; the left shoulder dislocated and remained the pelvic bone broken in three places. In addition, a bus handrail went into her hip and went out of the vagina. In the course of his life he had to endure many as 32 surgicaloperations. Released from the hospital, she was forced to years of resting in bed at home, with the bust in plaster. This situation prompted her to read books on thecommunist movement and to paint.
Palla was saved by volunteers and taken to the clinic, a nylon strap at the neck that nearly decapitated and perhaps wore since she was a puppy. This prevented the blood to flow properly, bringing the head to swell dramatically. But it is fine now, even if his head is not completely deflated, is beautiful all the same.
Dear Phillips , original artist of Detroit and active environment of Brooklyn, has emerged on the international scene with a series of projects, including the very special ultraviolet portraits born of his research on beauty. The Beauties Ultraviolet UV photographs that are inspired by dermatologists and beauty experts use to show customers and patients as will their skin in the future: the ultraviolet technology shows, in fact, all those defects hidden beneath the surface that may occur with aging. Dear Phillips decided to use the same technology , combined with black and white, to create entirely new portraits: no more perfect faces and fake , more or less heavily modified, but a set of imperfections that create real beauty. This project promotes the acceptance of oneself , testifying as the show itself for what it really is more effective than a representation artificially perfect.
