Artistic Endeavors – Humanae Project

Brazilian photographer Angelica Bass’s work in progress aims to “record and catalog all possible human skin tones, highlighting true tones rather than clichéd colors. The 2000 image-strong initiative is a series of portraits, all with the exact Pantone® tone of the subject pronounced in the background; the color extracted from an 11×11 pixel sample of the subject’s face.”

“Humanae began as a final project when Dass was completing her Masters in Art Photography, in April 2012. She started with photographs of family members in Brazil; and within the same year, she made announcements, attracting more participants. Later, the photographer was able to travel, capturing images of women and men in Madrid, Barcelona, ​​Winterthur, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Paris and Chicago.”

Dass explains her project in her TED talk. Further descriptions and explorations of her project are here and here.

What a great way to show there’s just no one “flesh” color.
