When Gemma was born, the midwife said she was the fairest child she'd ever seen. Not long after, she was diagnosed with albinism, a melanin deficiency that causes very fair hair and skin and extremely poor eyesight. This rare and intimate portrait explores Gemma's perspective about her condition, which has often made her an outsider-but equally determined to lead a normal life.
