Humanae by Angelica Dass

Words from the photographer:

Humanæ  is a chromatic inventory, a project that reflects on the colors beyond the borders of our codes by referencing the PANTONE® color scheme.

The project development is based on a series of portraits whose background is dyed with the exact Pantone® tone extracted from a sample of 11×11 pixels of the portrayed´s face. The project’s objective is to record and catalog all possible human skin tones.

Humanæ it’s a pursuit for highlighting our subtle-continuous of our tones that make more equality than difference… our true colors, rather than the untrue Red and Yellow, Black and White. It is a kind of game for subverting our codes. The audience is free to read into it. The ultimate goal is to provoke and bring currently using internet as a discussion platform on ethnic identity, creating images that lead us to match us independent from factors such as nationality, origin, economic status, age or aesthetic standards.

(All the portrayed are volunteers, people who approach to the project, visit the space in which I am portraying and decide to participate on their own by a Internet call on the Facebook page, on Tumblr , using public spaces in Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Winterthur, Bergen, Daegu,Addis Ababa, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Paris and Chicago)
(PANTONE® Guides are one of the main classification systems of colors, which are represented by an alphanumeric code, allowing to accurately recreate any of them in any media. It is a technical industrial standard often called Real Color)

  1. Love this – I did a similar montage on a quilt once. It was fun finding the appropriate skin-colored fabrics.

  2. Beautiful project. I like seeing the different variations of color. All is not black or white but several shades of individual.
