An Israeli bride, Tanzanian albinos, and “sea gypsies”

If you haven’t checked out The Big Picture, then you’re missing out on one of the best photoblogs around, and the most recent entry is just further proof of that.

The focus is on three stories: an Israeli bride forced to renounce her citizenship and all family ties because she’s marrying a Syrian man; Tanzanian albinos who are murdered and butchered for their skin and body parts, which are used for luck potions and witchcraft; and so-called “sea gypsies”, a Malaysian ethnic group who spends most of their lives on the ocean.

The photos are stunning and even heart-breaking, especially those of the albinos.
