ROOTS CULTURE

DREADS•DREADLOCKS•LOCKS

work in progress


The culture of the dreadlock hairstyle is a topic that I have wanted to embark on for a long time, and I’ve always been fascinated by dreadlocks and finally started this along waited project.


This cultural society almost seems sacred and holds a deeper meaning than just being a “hairstyle” that someone wears for fashion’s sake.  What mainly interests me is how long one has grown their locks, what it means to them, and why they grow their locks.


These are the first few photos that I've gathered for my Roots Culture project that I've started and will be adding more along the way.  I look forward to continuing this as a long-term project while learning more about this culture and sharing my work.


If you or someone you know has dreadlocks and would like to contribute towards my project please feel free contact me.
