In 2009, Brazilian photographer Gustavo Lacerda began a series focused on albinos who live in his homeland. His first hurdle was to gain their confidence, as most of the people he approached were accustomed to the harsh scrutiny of outsiders. Once trust was established, Lacerda invited them into his studio where he used classic portrait lighting to create an atmosphere of calmness, allowing each person the comfort needed to reveal their personalities.
Gustavo Lacerda works and lives Sao Paulo. His series, Albinos, has received critical praise and was recently featured on Huffington Post and Wonderland Magazine and is included in the Musée du Quai Branly Collection (Paris, France) and the Sao Paulo Museum of Art (Sao Paulo, Brazil). A monograph on Albinos is in production, and will be released at the end of 2013 by Editora Estudio Madalena.
We also have four photographs from the series currently on display at the gallery. Please stop by CEG or visit us at AIPAD, booth #204, to see more work by Gustavo Lacerda.
