Leon Botha, a Human Alien (25 pics)

Posted in Pictures   11 Mar 2010   / 99820 views

There is such a rare and terrible disease Progeria - premature aging at an early age.

One gene mutates and affects the whole organism. Those born with progeria typically live about thirteen years, although many have been known to live into their late teens and early twenties and rare individuals may even reach their forties.

The disorder has a very low incidence and occurs in one per eight million live births.

Here’s Leon Botha, a guy who has progeria and who’s already 24 years old.

No one knows how many years he will live.

It’s not funny, but he really has this alien look…

The pictures are beautiful, but heart breaking. They age so quickly, suffer so much. It's so unfair.

He's an amazing artist but a crap DJ from south Africa. He also stars in a crap but catchy song on youtube called 'Enter The Ninja' by Die Antwoord. I thought the song was rubbish but I can't stop listening to it.

Too me, it looks like he enjoys the Publicity.

Is this disease painful or do you just look like a freak ?

There is a reason for everything, this is a perfect example of why evolution could not have happen............anything mutating from the normal does not survive.

Yes, the disease can be painful. They suffer all the infirmities of old age:heart attacks, strokes, osteoporosis, arthritis, etc. It doesn't affect their intelligence level. Inside, they are young people with the same dreams and hopes that everyone else has. They have the same needs and desires. They want to be loved, accepted, be a part of society. Why shouldn't he show himself off? There are many truly offensive looking people on the internet who mistakenly think they are fabulous. His pictures are beautiful works of art. Masterpieces of the human soul. Learn to accept what is different and find the true beauty of the person.

Comment number 13: your words...i don't know what disgusting thing to say to make you understand how your words feel to me, your words feel to me as if you had a supermarket plastic bag full of excraments for heart. But that's not true, it's not your heart that is fucked up, it's your brain. You probably never even contacted or scratched the surface of your heart.

Also, what you say sounds mmore like the "stronger survives" Darwin theory rather than anything else. You know, life isn't all about "surviving", there is undescribable love and cooperation too.

Wow ... What a waste are these gorgeous photos on such ignorant people. I didn't quite understand how you got hold of such a treasure, and how could you attribute so cheap words to human elevation and spirituality ...

For you information #13, evolution does not need anything to take its course. I think you meant to say progress. As so, I dare you to face your failure, the failure of catching up with whatever it is that makes you remarkable and sophisticated. Shame ... one might think you got no culture, no education, that you are defined by the size of your cock, or the size of one nut, the colour of you hair or the colour of your nail.

Do me a favor, get a book or two, and cultivate your knowledge, first in culture, and then in Self.

Now burn.

He was exposed in this vulgar way by this ignorant swine of a blogger who can't write for shit, especially not creative writing, no more no less.

@13: Evolution is about adaptation so mutating from the norm and adapting to new environments is exactly what its about.

Throw away all you think you know and start over.

@17: I think you shouldn't expose your ignorance and stupidity quite so blatantly and doing so is incredibly sad.

How Leon has chosen to present himself is incredible and shows that he understands himself and the world around him more so than most.

Shame that these photos were leaked from a PDF sent to galleries to consider their exhibition and are shown in such a tawdry, sideshow way to an audience mostly devoid of understanding, intelligence and compassion.

It's sad parts of the convo has devolved into words about evolution. These photos are beautiful, compelling, provocative yet serene. They portray the man artistically, with dignity, respect, and honor.
