Albus, Esthetics of Albinism, Justin Dingwall -Thando Hopa Photo Project, Seattle, Til Feb.28

The word exhibit does not quite do justice to Albus (January 30 - February 28, 2014) currently  showing at M.I.A Gallery in Seattle.


This project-collaboration between 2 South Africans, photographer Justin Dingwall and model Thando Hopa "explores the aesthetics of Albinism in contrast with the idealized perception of beauty. Albinism touches every ethnic group and is characterized by the insufficiency of melanin that determines skin and hair color."
