Entry descriptionThe skin is the most visible organ of the human body. It has many protective functions, it affects the regulation of our body temperature. Our mood often depends on the appearance of our skin.
Skin of 1-2% of the population is covered with white spots. It is called vitiligo - a disease, manifested by the loss of pigment on the surface of skin and / or hair. I have vitiligo myself, since I was 4 years old.
WZORY, which in Polish means both 'designs' and 'role model', is my chronicle of and tribute to people with vitiligo, who despite the stigma that surrounds the condition, choose to bare all. WZORY is about role models who hope to inspire those struggling to understand or to embrace vitiligo.
In my work I am not focusing on the dramatic experiences of vitiligo, but rather on people who were on a certain path to self-acceptance, but today treat their spots as something natural, or even consider them as something that makes them special and in a sense embellishes their body.
