Looking for models - apply for "Shades of pale"

Sign in


I am still looking for models with vitiligo. If you are interested in being featured, please fill out below to apply. Send it to

These images document the individuality of woman with vitiligo and it celebrates and reinterprets their skin as a beautifully painted canvas. In the literal and biological sense, we are saying farewell to the melanin. However, in the broader sense, we are breaking free from our perception of beauty.
