Albinos don’t model! Why are you doing it?” a young man once asked Shaun Ross, an emerging model.  , “I do what I do because they told me I couldn’t,” he sharply replied.   Confidence is this  model’s middle name!  Shaun has walked the runway for the late Alexander McQueen, Givenchy, and Odyn Vovk (his favorite designer), and has shot editorial campaigns for British GQ, Vogue Italia, and Paper Magazine.

His favorite quote is:  “Iron gets put through unbearable fire and heat to be made into steel” He says it describes his career in the fashion industry today, facing the trials and tribulations that come with the territory of being the first male African-American albino model, to be exact!  “Being the first to do something in anything will cause a stir to the public.  You will get negative     Photograph taken by: Daymion Mardel            or positive feedback with anything that you do,” says Shaun.  “I have people who stare at me ‘24-7’ with their children; in either excitement or discharge. And numerous people feel that I am an extraterrestrial life form of some sort.”
