Obsessed With Fair Skin? Watch This Tale of A Dark-Skinned Woman
When your skin colour decides the fate of your marriage, is changing its colour the only solution?
India is a country obsessed with fair skin. With innumerable fairness creams in the market and white-skinned models propagating that fair skin is a pre-requisite to success, dark-skinned people get a backseat.
A photo series, called “Color of our Skin”, by California-based photographer Arjun Kamath, captures the very problems dark-skinned women go through in a country obsessed with fairness.
The story is simple, yet effective. A father facing problems to find his dark-skinned daughter a match is left with only one solution: Painting her face white.
It is a tragic tale of how our society – even in the 21st century – does not accept skin colour. The simple message that it sends is to live and let live!
