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.
The title of my photo project about vitiligo is WZORY. In polish, this word has two meanings. One: just patterns, designs. Second: it means „role model”. Each of the 10 photographed people, regardless of their nationality, gender and age, can be a role model for others who cannot cope with their condition. 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.
