Barcelona-based photographer Laia Abril, whose work often focuses on gender and sexuality, shot a series of portraits of people who say they "feel no sexual attraction to others." They identify as asexual, and often face stigma and isolation because their orientation is seen by others as unhealthy or lacking.
From the photographer's website:
Asexuals do not feel sexual attraction. Asexuals romantics might feel romance and platonic affection but not sexual desire. Asexuals aromantics feel neither. The first community of “out” asexuals coalesced in the early 21st century, but struggles to deal with prejudices similar to that levelled against other sexual minorities. Accused of disease or denial, many asexual now hope to increase visibility and knowledge of their sexuality. The project portrays and gives voice to a whole spectrum of this sexual orientation, aiming to shed some light on a little-known community and to create a visual-creative-informative platform that encourages engagement.

It’ll go from 20 years from publication to 70 years after the photographer’s death, and it’s retroactive, meaning that millions of presently public domain photos reproduced online and in books will suddenly become copyright violations with gigantic penalties for all concerned.
