Red hair. The man was obsessed with it. Fiery, pale, strawberry, titian, auburn--red hair was the only thing photographer Howard Schatz could not transpose, inside his head, into shades of gray. "A black-and-white photographer looks in his camera and mentally converts colors to the way they will look," Schatz says. "But when I saw red hair in my viewfinder, that was all I could see." So he decided to mingle his obsession with his art.

HOMELESS: Portraits of Americans in Hard Times, photographs by Howard Schatz (Chronicle Books: $22.95; 141 pp.) Many of the photographs here are accompanied by quotes that show the variety of circumstances that create homelessness. Says Jubilee Hasty, 21 (above): "A homeless person is someone that's lost. The earth should be your home; you should realize how to get your own shelter and that the earth totally provides for everybody.

Howard Schatz is an acclaimed photographer, but his latest book is also billed with a directing credit. It's for good reason. "In Character: Actors Acting" is exactly that -- portraits of 100 actors caught doing what they do best in still photos, as opposed to film.

The debate over David Parsons' ability to choreograph has now entered its 13th year and, immensely clever fellow that he is, this former Paul Taylor principal now focuses it on the issue of accessibility. "Is it really that bad being accessible?" Parsons asked rhetorically in Dance Insider magazine last April, as if his attackers champion impenetrable obscurity. "And why aren't more modern dance choreographers trying to be accessible?" Because it doesn't work.

At Ace Contemporary Exhibitions, small shows by Robert Irwin and Mary Corse gracefully play off each other, providing insights into how the spare work of each artist needs to be seen. In the center of an elegantly proportioned gallery, a thin 12-foot column made by Irwin in 1970 presides over the room's emptiness like a fragile sentinel. A cross section of the perfectly crafted, clear plastic piece is V-shaped, causing its contour to resemble that of the Stealth bomber's wings.

The other day while waiting in line to get on the freeway, I spotted a grizzled old derelict holding a hand-scrawled cardboard sign. The sight has become so familiar it's almost invisible. This was a little different. Instead of the usual pathetic plea about willingness to work for food, this guy's placard read: "I won't lie. I need a drink."
