The Vitligo project consist of a collection of portraits of volunteers from New York, Detroit and Montreal. The goal is to show the beauty of people with Vitiligo and display their own emotions onto their skin. Many people with Vitiligo wanted to show me their own acceptance of who they are.

Art is the way to transcend and heal.
