Be albinos: Paulo


Morogoro, Tanzania - 2013

In Tanzania, a person out of 1400 is albino. As animism is still widespread, there are shamans who brew miraculous potions out of their bodies, promising health and prosperity. Noses, ears, tongues, genitals and limbs of an albino may worth up to 75.000$.

Paulo was 1 of the 73 children of the nursery where I worked as educator for some weeks. And the one out of 1400.
