Sophie Laubert – Kenya Albinism
A in dept view of Albinism within Africa
5&33 Gallery presents “Kenya Albinism”, an exposition from Amsterdam based photographer Sophie Laubert.
Sophie Laubert found her passion for photography a few years ago during some challenging time in her life. Over the last couple of years Sophie has worked hard on her portfolio by working with a series of varying clients and assignments. In doing so, she has amassed a diverse and extensive portfolio.
She has a great affection to Africa; so much so that Sophie decided to collaborate with the Africa Albino’s Foundation documenting the Children’s School for the Blind and the Macheo Children’s Centre to heighten awareness of albinism.
Thursday June 13th is International Albinism Awareness Day and this year’s topic “Still Standing Strong” is to give recognition, celebrate and stand in solidarity with all those affected by albinism around the world. We commend their accomplishments and positive practices in their battle for their human rights.
People with albinism face ongoing hurdles and challenges that seriously undermine their human rights and Sophie’s work, rightfully, put these issues in the spotlight.
“Kenya Albinism” by Sophie Laubert will be on display at the 5&33 Gallery from Monday May 27th to Saturday June 22nd.
