Red Hot X: A Daring Nude Male Art Book Celebrating Redheads.
Photographer Thomas Knights Reveals Stunning New Project
Renowned photographer Thomas Knights is set to release his latest art book, Red Hot X, a bold and daring hardback coffee table book featuring nude redhead males in stunning locations worldwide.
The Red Hot project, celebrating its 10-year anniversary, has sought to challenge taboos and defy the erasure of male redhead sexuality in media. The project showcases ginger beauty through calendars, art books, and exhibitions.
A First-of-its-Kind Ginger Male Nude Art Book
Red Hot X marks the first ginger male nude art book globally, showcasing sensational boys, outrageous settings, and exhilarating storylines in three acts. Act I, shot in the Algarve, transports readers to a world of crime, hedonism, and danger. Acts II and III will be shot in the UK and US, respectively. You can back the project on Kickstarter here.
