In Tanzania, albinos are commonly known as “Zeru” in Swahili, which means ghost-like creatures and is used as a derogatory term. Around lake Victoria, evil acts are driven by the belief that albino body parts possess magical powers. It is believed these body parts will bring wealth if used in potions produced by local witchdoctors.

En Tanzanie, les albinos sont appelés vulgairement « Zeru », ce qui signifie en langue swahili créatures fantomatiques. Une croyance attribue des pouvoirs magiques à certaines parties de leur corps, qui sont censées apporter la richesse quand elles sont transformées en potions par des sorciers locaux.

Franck Vogel works as a freelance photojournalist on social and environmental issues for the international press (Paris Match, GEO, Le Monde magazine, NRC Weekblad, Animan, Discovery magazine…).

Since 2007, he has focused on the unique relationships between Nature and Human beings to show the World that it’s possible to live in harmony. Most reportage depict the worst, Franck decided to bring hope. In India, his story on the Bishnois, the world’s first environmentalists, illustrates this in the best way. This work has been published all over the world, including GEO magazine for its special 30th anniversary in 2009, and featured inside Parisian Metro stations in 2011 (Montparnasse) and 2012 (Luxembourg). Over 12 million visitors have seen those huge exhibitions. To give a wider audience, Franck wrote and co-directed a 52 min documentary film for France 5, "The Bishnois, India’s eco-warriors", broadcasted in June 2011.

He is ambassador for Green Cross France, Mikhaïl Gorbatchev's NGO.
