Caption: BaAka mother with albino son. The BaAka (also called the Bayaka or Aka) are a nomadic people of the Western Congo Basin in Central Africa. They are part of the wider grouping of Mbenga people, historically called pygmies. Albinism is a genetic disorder characterized by a lack of the pigment melanin, which gives colour to the skin, hair and eyes. Those affected are known as albinos. Photographed in the south-western region of the Central African Republic.
