Dreads by Francesco Mastalia & Alphonse Pagano


For the dreadhead who has almost everything.



From the inside cover:

In Dreads, photographers Francesco Mastalia and Alfonse Pagano capture the rebels of of this natural hair revolution in all their beautiful, subversive glory. More than one hundred duotone portraits present dread-heads from all walks of life: a Brooklyn postal worker, a Japanese farmer, an Indian sadhu, a Jamaican drummer.

Interviewed on location by the photographers, jatta-wearers from around the world wax philosophic about the integrity of their hair, and every stunning image confirms their choice. In her introduction, Alice Walker offers lyrical ruminations about her decision to let her own mane mat.
