Photographer Gustavo Lacerda puts albinos centre stage in his stunning project

We’ve always been taught it’s wrong to stare at those different to ourselves but Gustavo Lacerda’s Albinos project turns that aphorism on its head, inviting us to stare at his subjects as they stare right back. The Braziian’s series is a sensitive, muted affair, subverting any preconceptions about this well-known pigment condition into ethereal beauty, poise and grace. Quietly powerful and thought-provoking, it’s a real tour de force from a talented photographer.
