Rescue ‘Fortress’ In Tanzania Protects Albinos From Human Hunters

The rescue centres in Tanzania protect albino people from the vicious hunters who sell their body parts to witch doctors. Photojournalist Ana Palacios, 43, visited the centre in Tanzania three times between 2012 and 2016 to find out more about the plight of albino people. Persecution of albinism is rooted in the belief that the body parts can transmit magical powers, however, they are also ostracised by those who believe that they are cursed and bring bad luck. The Tanzanian government has been forced to set up special centres to protect people with albinism from harm.

Sculptor Creates A Mutant ‘Concept Human’ To Survive Car Crashes

1

Here we have sculptor Patricia Piccinini’s ugly baby, Graham, a high-concept mutant designed to withstand car crashes. Graham’s unsettling physiology was created in collaboration with trauma surgeon Christian Kenfield and road safety engineer David Logan in order to emphasize how incredibly fragile our (comparatively attractive) human bodies are, and as far as public safety service announcements go, he really gets the point across. Our mushy little brains are so vulnerable in our (more or less) normal-sized heads! Continue reading »
