This 'Albino' series by Gustavo Lacerda features subjects with pale skin and platinum blonde hair -- common symptoms held by those with the congenital disorder. But even more striking than the appearance of the people in this photo collection is Lacerda's ability to capture the vibrant personalities of each individual in an almost candid manner. It makes for dynamic and provocative imagery that really speaks of Lacerda's skill.

Gustavo Lacerda is a Brazilian photographer who has been taking pictures for almost three decades now. Though he studied journalism in school, he found himself enraptured by the art world and would eventually gain enough notoriety to have his work featured in exhibits and magazines. Lacerda is equally adept at capturing the essence of locales as he is with photographing people.
