These Indonesian Tribespeople Have A Rare Genetic Condition That Turns Their Eyes Bright Blue (10 Pics)

Published 3 weeks ago

Korchnoi Pasaribu is an Indonesian geologist and photographer who recently traveled to the small island of Buton to photograph some of the local tribespeople. Some of the island’s natives are affected by a rare genetic condition called the Waardenburg syndrome that gives them one very distinctive feature – incredibly bright and blue eyes.

In a recent interview with Bored Panda, Korchnoi said he has known the tribespeople since 2019. However, he only went to photograph them on September of this year and added that he was very happy to finally take their photos. See Korchnoi breathtaking photos of the Buton island residents in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
