Her Only Fault Was Being Dark Skinned

Arjun Kamath, a photographer and film student in Los Angeles, recently uploaded a fictional photo story titled “Color Of Our Skin”, a story about a dark-skinned woman whose family is struggling to get her married, and her journey towards accepting that she is beautiful as she is.

“The story idea is simple: to stop judging people for the way they look – dark, fair, slim, overweight etc. Life’s a short journey, so let’s make it memorable and worthwhile for ourselves and everyone else around us. Live and let live,” Kamath told BuzzFeed.
