Just a quick post to point you to a beautiful photojournalism piece by Jacquelyn Martin: “Portraits of Albinism: Letting an inner light shine.”
It’s accompanied by an article (and radio broadcast, if you happened to tune into to WBUR in the Boston area on Saturday at 4:30pm-ish!) on the many challenges faced by the albino community in Tanzania. You can read & listen to it here: Tanzania’s Albino’s Face Constant Threat of Attack by John Burnett If you listen to the segment, you can hear Vicky Ntetema, the BBC journalist who was one of the first to expose the trade in body parts & now the executive director of Under the Same Sun, who I interviewed when I traveled to Tanzania in my research for GOLDEN BOY!
Martin’s pictures are beautiful.
