Kefulazia JUMA Shinyanga Tanzania - In/Visibility

Photographer's Name
Patrick Gries

Kefulazia JUMA lived in an old school for the visually impaired. The building housed more than 120 children with albinism; confined behind walls and living in in rather precarious conditions.
Albinos in Tanzania, for the most part, do not have any civil status or legitimacy: they are not registered at birth and they do not die - rather, they “vanish”. There are no graves of albinos in cemeteries.
