It's Hair Loss Support At Its Best
‘Strangers Who Stare’ tells the story of what it’s like to live with the autoimmune condition, Alopecia Areata*. Utilizing portraiture and personal history, it explores issues of appearance, identity, and perception, but it’s really about how we look at how we look – when we don’t look like each other.
*Alopecia Areata is a disease in which the immune system mistakenly attacks healthy hair follicles resulting in hair loss, ranging from localized patchy bald spots to complete hair loss of the head and body [Alopecia Universalis]. Though not life-threatening, it is random, pattern-less, and incurable, and it attacks both men and women of all ages.
