Enchanting photos: Celebrating the unique beauty of albinos

Photographer Yulia Taits is drawing attention around the world for her photos of people with albinism.

Albinos, people who don't have much or any pigment in their hair, skin and eyes, don't appear too often in photoshoots. That's why Israeli photographer Yulia Taits' new collection is unique: she took photos of albino models in fairy tale landscapes for her exhibit "Porcelain Beauty," showing what she calls the "hypnotizing beauty" of albinos.

"This beauty is so pure and amazing for me, as if it was taken from fantasies and fairy tale legends," Taits wrote on BoredPanda in a post that currently has 565,000 views.

The scenes she creates are soft and pure, like a morning dream. They apparently required little adjusting.

"As a Photoshop artist, I have a passion to create fantasy worlds through my work and artistry," Taits continued. "This series was an amazing experience for me because I could create this beautiful photography without Photoshop. What transpired was pure natural beauty."

White can often just seem like a single shade, but this series shows how diverse the color can be.

"All of the photographs were taken in white tones with no additional coloring," Taits wrote. "I’m excited to prove that white is not just one color! It has many tints, shades and beautiful tones."
