Stranger in familiar land is a series that looks at the persecution of albinos in Sub-Saharan Africa. In Tanzania for example, they are hunted for body parts, with the belief that they possess magical powers. People fear what they do not understand and because of this fear, people with albinism continue to be at the receiving end of ridicule and persecution.
A woman with albinism set against the backdrop of the Kibera slums, which are a metaphor for my turbulent vision of the outside world. The series illustrates the life of an albino who is forced to face challenges emanating from both the sun and society. The series additionally illustrates how the sense of not belonging, has caused her to wander and exist in a dreamlike state.
