Life in the Shadows: Albinism in Africa 1 The modern-day social issue of living with albinism in Africa is, today, probably much as it has been for centuries - an issue steeped in deep-rooted superstition and mythology. Most media coverage of Africans with albinism is centred on the news-grabbing extremes of their physical abuse, mutilation and even murder. Such coverage makes little mention of the adversities they face every day - including stigma & extreme discrimination, isolation & exclusion, serious health & vision problems, and public ridicule. And all this every day, day-in, day-out. So this story is about the ordinary: the ordinary daily story of African people with albinism, a story that few of us know about. Accompanying the photographs are the subjects’ own stories of their daily lives, in their own words - far more telling than anything I could write.
