Photographer and writer Abhi Chinniah explores colourism - discrimination based on skin colour - in her exhibition Melanin Rising. Through portraits, essays, and interviews, she seeks to understand skin-lightening practices and how the media represents dark-skinned people. What can we do to create a world where there is no discrimination based on colourism? At the core of this photo series sits an important message: love your melanin!
The In-Venue show at NZ Steel Gallery, Franklin Arts Centre includes pieces from both A Migrant's Path and Melanin Rising body of works. There is an audio set-up and screens with videos.
