Los Angeles-based photographer, Arjun Kamath has come forward with yet another series of beautiful photographs and storytelling, hitting hard against our obsession with the idea of fair skin. Kamath - curator of poignant photo series like Avani, on female foeticide, and Coming Out, on homosexuality - has now presented the third series on this cruel obsession.
The series “Colour of Skin” presents a story with the idea “every marriage has its own story”. The series, the style of which falls in line with what Kamath has exemplified himself, renders a close look at the evils practised in our society in the name of colour. The best part is the twist Kamath introduces - that discrimination and ill treatment is not restricted to women but this social evil even engulfs men. (Source: Arjun Kamath Photography/ Facebook)
