Dreadlocks are a modern phenomenon with roots reaching as far back as the fifth century. Dreadlocks are a modern phenomenon with roots reaching as far back as the fifth century. According to ancient Hindu beliefs, dreads signified a singleminded pursuit of the spiritual. Devotion to God displaced vanity, and hair was left to its own devices. Dreads captures this organic explosion of hair in all its beautiful, subversive glory.

In 1990 Pagano took up photography and co-authored a photojournalism book, DREADS, in 1999. With an introduction from Alice Walker the book published by Artisan/Workman Press is on its eighth printing. A move from NYC to Newark, NJ in 2011 inadvertently led to a development of a new technique forging both disciplines of painting and photography.

I bought this for my other half because he has locs and also because he always wanted the hardcover edition of this book. I surprised him one day by purchasing it as a gift. He still has the paperback version but this one has a different cover, so now he has two books to treasure. Also, the book holds a particular memory of a woman who passed in his life that originally had a copy of this book. She was an influential person in his development as a man/person, so I know purchasing this book meant a lot to him.

My loctician had this book on her coffee table during my last visit and I fell in love with my locks all over again. The book opens with an introduction by Alice Walker that recaps her first encounter with locks and her subsequent adoption of the style. Through this introduction, Walker addresses some of the common misconceptions about locks. "Dreads" continues with a historical perspective of locks and their political, religious and fashion roots. This is a great coffee table item. Not only is the book a great validation of the beauty and uniqueness of locks but it is also an excellent way to inform people of the facts about locks. I wish I had a copy of the book at the office when I started the locking process three years ago! Highly Recommended!

i find it sometimes best to inform people by simply placing a book on my desk to check out the response as well to inform....pictures are worth a thousand words! My coworkers are enthralled with the beauty of the black and white images..also the size of the images...... everyone from asian, indian, african and european decent magnifies the beauty and majesty of coiled hair....from refined american inspired locks...to the sea and salt enhanced locks of jamica...this pictorial pays tribute to the sublime beauty of locked hair. Is this pictorial exploitative as a another reviewer suggested? ..this does not appear to be the intention...the participants appear proud to contribute and demontrate a different kind of beauty. Since locking hair is a process that takes fortitude and time, this book is inspiration.

It was a joy to peruse through the photos of dreads in this book and to read the "whys" many were willing to share therein. My base of knowledge has definitely been expanded as I had no idea this phenomenon is occuring, has occured WORLDwide. I applaud the photographers for their work and the effort required to pull this project together.
Yet, my research continues. One reviewer eluded to a difference between dreads and locks. I am inclined to believe/agree with this statement. Where does one find the answer?
I am an aspiring lock wearer for I surely do not fit the "dread" category, physically and certainly not spiritually.
Thanks again Misters Pagano and Mastalia.

Love ths book. I use to own a hard copy and excellent conversation piece. My uncle borrowed it and I decided to get a new copy so that he can keep the one I lend him. The paperback is just as good. You just need to be careful if a child is looking through the book. I Would recommmend to anyone that wishes to see the beauty of natural dreads of people throughout the world.

Dreads is a masterful work of superior photography accompanied by explanations of what dreadlocked hair means to each of the individuals included in the book. This book is a must-have for any true dreadlock enthusiast and an excellent conversation piece for a salon or living room coffee table. I was pleasantly surprised to see that Amazon actually carried brand new copies because the book was actually out of circulation for a while. Maybe with the re-emergence and popularity of dreadlocked hair the publishers decided to crank up the presses once again. Whatever the reason, I strongly suggest that you buy this book before it's no longer available. Dreads is a true work of art and offers unique perspectives that extend to many different continents and ethnicities.
I purchased this book so many years ago. I actually took some pages out of the book and framed them because the pictures were so nice. I love this book and anyone who looks at it loves it too.
