Abushe, An African Child With Plastic Eyes – Design You Trust

Abushe, An African Child With Plastic Eyes


Eric Lafforgue

Abushe lives in southern Ethiopia. No one would pay any attention to him, but if you catch a glimpse of his eyes, their incredible magnetic colour will stop you in your tracks. Abushe suffers from the Waardenburg syndrome. One of the characteristics of this syndrome is an abnormal spacing between the eyes but mainly a special pigmentation of the irises. This phenomenon is rare. Its effects are obviously striking on a child with black skin like the little Ethiopian.
