Albinos, A Beautiful Photo Essay of People With Albinism

Albinos

Albinos is a beautiful photo essay of people with albinism started in 2009 by Brazilian photographer Gustavo Lacerda. Using muted colors and soft lights to stage the portraits, Lacerda is able to present his subjects in a visually stunning way. Albinism is a genetic defect where the body is “unable to produce or distribute melanin, a natural substance that gives color to your hair, skin, and iris of the eye.” There are more images from the series at his website.
