The photographer noted that “the idea of ​​starting work only came in 2009, I realized that besides the aesthetic richness had significant issues, as social invisibility, a fotofobia, being that photography is essentially light. I was involving myself and the project was growing ". He photographed approximately 50 albinos for five years.

The photographs were taken in the studio of the artist, in São Paulo, and also in Rio de Janeiro and Maranhão, in villages near the island of Sheets, known for its high concentration of albinos. Aware that he was dealing with people who do not normally live position players, the author invited to the formal studio environment. And so it is with "Albinos", Gustavo Lacerda can portray a world full of feelings: mixture of pride and vanity, discomfort and annoyance. A universe full of extremes.
In one of the book pages, the reader can handle a letter, written by a mother of two albino twin sisters, also featured in the book.
