Photographer With Vitiligo Takes Stunning Pictures Of Women With Same Condition
Unfortunately, people tend to stare when they come across anyone who appears to be physically distinctive in some way. It's just human nature, but we unknowingly perpetuate stigmatization of being 'different'. It's not a good thing! Photographer Elisabeth Van Aalderen is trying to create beauty out of our differences, by capturing pictures of women who have Vitiligo (a skin condition that causes patches of skin to lose its pigment cells (melanocytes), resulting in the discoloration of patches in different areas of the body). Seeing the positivity in all types of physical appearances spreads the message to these women and the general public, that everyone is beautiful, no matter what they look like on the outside.
