Light Skin Dark Skin - The Upstairs Gallery - Lopdell House Titirangi

In collaboration with the Auckland Festival of Photography, The Upstairs Gallery is delighted to open LIGHT SKIN DARK SKIN by Abhi Chinniah. This exhibition is around Colorism and the real-life experiences of brown women.

"My main focus is women who are minorities, as I am a woman who is a minority. There is so much more to us than the colour of our skin and I want this exhibition to tell this story. That even with all the odds stacked against us, we rise, we accomplish and we succeed."

22 May - 14 June
