Gustavo Lacerda

Gustavo Lacerda. Has done a series of photographs/paintings on albinos. It is a genet(/r)ic disorder that affects eyesight and skin colour. Lacerda’s pictures look haunting. The subjects are fragile. Almost alien. And they look uncommonly intelligent. I was fascinated by these pictures because I myself am very fair. My hair was red and there were freckles but as I’ve gotten older my  hair has turned white. Only my wrinkles betray a blank white canvas.

And then of course there is Village of the Damned based on the novel The Midwich Cuckoos by John Wyndham
