In a country where 90% of the population is black, Haitians with albinism are an ostracized minority. Constantly seen as different, they are forced to find unique paths towards their true selves.
Venel, a Haitian albino, works with great fidelity as a housekeeper and gardener for my grandmother. He and his twin brother, Luinor, live between two worlds, between black and white, rich and poor. Their strong bond, forged on the fringes of Haitian society, results from a feeling of rejection in their youth. Yet today, Venel seems to have reached a deeper layer of acceptance.
As I traveled back to Haiti, searching for a sense of belonging and attachment to my roots, I came across the story of a man seeking a similar path: an understanding of identity.
