Damilola Onafuwa is exploring the lives of Nigerians with albinism

In his latest series, 'Angels Among Men', documentary photographer, Damilola Onafuwa is exploring the lives of Nigerians with albinism.

According to 'The Albino Foundation', the rate of albinism in Nigeria is ranked amongst the highest in the world — with an estimated figure of over two million people. This makes them one of the largest vulnerable groups in the country today.

The series seeks to debunk the myths associated with albinism, as well as celebrate the Nigerians who have, in spite of the negativity associated with the colour of their skin, lived above it all and made a life for themselves.

Speaking about the series and its title, Damilola said:
