Photographer's Note

800th photos on TE

Light colored skin is an Asian obsession, as dark skin is perceived as old and directly connected to class.

In a society that is so vehemently infused with the pursuit of riches and status, nobody wants to think of themselves as looking like a peasant, as these are the people who are thought of as having darker skin, working in the fields.
