Michelle Marshall captures unusual manifestations of the MC1R gene among black and mixed raced individuals of all ages
Michelle Says - "I want to stir the perception that most of us have of a ‘ginger' as a white caucasian individual, potentially of Celtic descent ... As we struggle with issues of immigration, discrimination and racial prejudice, Mother Nature, meanwhile, follows its own course, embracing society’s plurality and, in the process, shaking up our perceptions about origins, ethnicity and identity."
"A beautiful picture doesn't always relate what it's like to be different," Marshall said in an interview with Vice
"There's a flipside to being different: it's not always accepted. Beautiful photography serves one purpose, but in the context of daily life people may not have that reaction."
