The Alopecia Photo project is a photo project of Simone and Salimah Gablan and is made in collaboration with six young dutch girls with Alopecia. Alopecia is a skin disease. When you have this disease your hair falls out completely or partly. It can be very traumatic. A lot of people think it is cancer but Alopecia is not a terminal disease. This project has to make people aware of that case.
As a photographer I followed six young girls and documentated a few days of their lives, living with Alopecia. I did some studio work and documentation work as well in their own environment. The project had led to a big exhibition and a phonebook, you can see the full book on this website beneath the images. In the book you can see illustrations of Salimah Gablan, photography by Simone Gablan.
