These images are of people with Albinism taken on assignment for CNN during the world’s first Mr and Ms Albinism Pageant held in October 2016 in Nairobi, Kenya. In Africa, Albinism is associated with many negative misconceptions and superstitions. Seen as a punishment from God or bad luck, even a contagious ‘disease’, people living with albinism (PWA) in Africa often suffer stigma, alienation and physical abuse. According to the Albino Association of Kenya, 90% of people with albinism in Kenya come from broken homes, raised by single mothers. Albinism has the potential to affect young people both emotionally and psychologically with social attitudes often effecting how they perceive themselves. Evidence from research suggests that for a child to be socially competent he or she needs to have a positive self-concept and demonstrate socially acceptable behaviours. In October 2016, under the banner “Beauty Beyond The Skin”, the world’s first Mr and Ms Albanism Pageant was organized by the Albinism Society of Kenya (ASK) to fight the stigma associated with albinism and to build the confidence of albino youth in Kenya. Not only raising money for Albino’s cancer treatment, counseling and for the provision of sunscreen lotion which helps in prevention of skin cancer, the Pageant event championed for better medical services for the challenges that are characteristic of the condition and brings to light the need to address all violations of human rights.

Turin; You Do Not See by Riccardo Surace

The project titled What You Do Not See, Unordinary tells the story of the City of Turin, my city, seen through the eyes of passersby. All photographs have been captured with a long exposure technique; in other words, I mixed then history of the city with my own history, my life experience. In fact, after five years spent fighting a disease, my artistic purpose is primarily that of representing the all too familiar feeling when, as a young man wandering through the city, one feels invisible, and yet still he is thoroughly involved in its daily frenzy.

Fragments by Anne-Marie Giroux.

Fragments is a project within a project. Since 2020, I have been working on an installation project entitled Drifts Drifting Phase II which will be presented at Espace Produit Rien in Montréal in April 2023. The installation proposes a questioning of human and artistic drift, theme that I have been exploring since 2014. Adopting a critical and mocking approach on the relevance of the very essence of the art object, I also question the relevance of being an artist, and particularly, the relevance of being a woman artist.

Down below the streets of the ghetto are not safe. A German soldier has been killed and revenge is about to be sought. Boots are  heard on the ground, moving ever closer to number 9.
