Teaching The Camera To See My Skin.
An essay by photographer Syreeta McFadden on "photography's inherent bias against dark skin."
"Photography is balancing an equation between light and documentary. Beauty and storytelling. Honesty and fantasy. The frame says how the photographer sees you. I couldn’t help but feel that what that photographer saw was so wildly different from how I saw myself."
