The Albino Project

  |   Senza categoria   |   No comment

Albinism in humans is a congenital disorder characterized by the complete or partial absence of pigment in the skin, hair and eyes. It is associated with a number of vision defects, sunburn and skin cancers. Albinism affects people of all ethnic backgrounds; frequency is approximately one in 17,000 worlwide and is highest overall in people of sub-Saharan African descent.

My project aims to report the stories of albinos that live in 4 African countries, using pictures as main strong language. The albino project will be a book and an exhibition that will travel the main cities in Europe.

A page of the project will be soon available on my web site, www.antoninocondorelli.com

Kathrin is seen on a sofà in her aunt’s house. She was abandoned by her parents after the birth due to her albinism. “If I met my mother I would ask her if she loves me and how does she can demonstrate to me.”

I am an Italian photojournalist based in Germany. I work as freelance photjournalist since 1996, covering social issues and human rights reportages.
