A series of images documenting the lives of people with albinism in Jinja, Uganda. Photographed on behalf of the Source Of The Nile Union Of Persons With Albinism (SNUPA).
This grass-roots organization works in the region to raise awareness regarding the challenges facing people with albinism and to dispel the dangerous myths surrounding the condition.
I work exclusively with NGOs to find creative solutions to their communications challenges - to find ways to tell their stories, so they might connect with, educate, and inspire their supporters.
