Story

This will be my third trip to Tanzania to teach photography to people with Albinism.

During our visits we take lots of day trips and sightseeing adventures to photograph new things. Bumpy journeys in an old yellow school bus are full of songs and laughter.

Black Tanzania's, white Europeans and Tanzanian's with Albinism. We must look quite a mix!

Last year on the way back from photographing some magnificent rock formations with the group, our guide and fellow teacher, Yohana, informed us that there was a wedding nearby and that we could visit to pay our respects.

Our collection of all sorts all piled off the bus and into the outdoor wedding party.

Beers were handed around and as we delved further into the wedding party we all found ourselves on the dance floor.

We were introduced, we payed our respects to the newly weds, the oil drum speakers started vibrating and everyone started dancing.

That was the moment I took this photograph of Elizabeth surrounded by fellow Tanzanians.

People with albinism are shunned and persecuted and sometimes murdered in east Africa.

This photo shows a different story.

Someone with Albinism having unbridled fun with a group of fellow Africans.

A hopeful picture of a possible future.

That's why I'm going again. More cameras, more photographs and more fun.

If you can donate I can vouch that it is all much appreciated.
