Variation of white
Variation of White deals with the subjective nature of gare. This series shows portraits of albinos, a minority of people who suffer from myths and discrimination. At firs glance, the observant develops his own opinion about this topic and does not realize right away that the portraits actually are negative images of the original photographs. Our subjectivity is revealed when an image that we first perceived as reality turns out to be something completely different. To make the original images appear, stare at the red dot for 30 seconds, then look at the white canvas and blink.
