Albinism causes recessive gene passed to the subject by both parents. Everyone can possess the gene of albinism. It is 1 person in 20,000 who suffers from a type of albinism. Due to lack of pigment, the body, hair and eyes are deprived of color, and therefore albinos are very sensitive to sunlight. Their skin get inflammed easily. In addition, albinism is associated with serious eye problems connected with nystagmus, photophobia, and astigmatism. As a result, albinos often avoid contact with any light. They often are subjects of stygmatyzm. That is why they avoid contact with others.
Why should we not go against the seretypes of beauty and show the charm of those who would never think of themselves as the icons of beauty?!
Faces of the people we look at in the magazines are often subjests of timeconsuming hours of make - up, styling and computer perfection. There are plenty of people who work on the effect of beauty of people we look at. In the end, we do not know the orginal beauty of the photographed person. The photographed albinos prove the beauty which nature has created.
What is a real, genuine beauty?! Beauty that not everyone is able see? Albions, they live in the margins, in the shade and shadow. And I wanted to pull them out of their shelters and put them on the stage and prove them and others (or at least, let them try belive) that the real beauty is not the matter of staff that will create it , yet it is a matter of inner soul truth.
