Melanin x Color: NY Photographer Poses Black Women Against Colored Backdrops for Stunning Photo Series

Avatar • Aug 4, 2015

Culturally when we discuss black skin, it is often framed as problematic. It is “too dark” or “too light”, but New York photographer Chandler Easley of the Cherry Collab highlights the simple beauty of black skin by posing women of color against vivid backdrops. Check out some of the stunning pictures;

If only black men could see the beauty in us that we see in ourselves.

We do rock vibrant colors really well. I see it when we rock bright African clothing/fabric. Color does really pop against our skin tone. I wished we did it more, especially with the natural hair. We simply look gorgeous with that combo.
