Vitiligo: A Memoir is a photoseries project created by Medha Iyer to raise awareness about vitiligo and to illustrate the many challenges of having an autoimmune skin condition through an artistic medium.

 

Change illustrates the challenges faced by going through the never-ending cycle of depigmentation, treatment, and regimentation of vitiligo and advocates for taking control of one’s body through acceptance and confidence.


 

Chocolate or Vanilla? portrays the internal conflict faced by having vitiligo and suggests the possibility of both having vitiligo and being happy.


 

Illusion depicts the power of creating one’s own identity and looking at personal image in a positive light.
