Vitiligo is a long-term skin condition characterized by patches of the skin losing their pigment. Its cause is unknown, but it is believed to be genetic. With the most many know about vitiligo being that it was what pop legend Michael Jackson had, there has been lots of misinformation and stigma around the condition, but that hasn’t stopped Miki Deo from showing the world what beauty really is.

Deo is Tanzania’s first vitiligo male model, and he recently teamed up with two Tanzanian female creatives for ‘In His Skin.’ Shot in all black and white, the photo series celebrates his specific form of Blackness to stunning effect.
