Brazilian photographer, Angelica Dass, is on a mission to capture every skin tone in the world for her Human Pantone Project aka HUMANÆ. Pantone is the world-renowned authority on color and provider of color systems, and most known for their Pantone Color Matching System.
Once Angelica takes a stunning raw photo of a volunteer, she carefully matches the background with the exact same color code as an 11-pixel portion of the model’s face. The project aims to expand the definition of diversity and to shed light on how much skin tone differs from person to person. More importantly, Dass uses the codified Pantone system because it “dilutes the false preeminence of some races over others based on skin color or social condition.”
The project began in early 2016 and has no real end date since Dass wants to capture as much as she possibly can—salute. Hit the jump to check out Dass’ work.
