Humanae is a project by the Spanish artist Angelica Dass, it got me intrigued ever since it crossed my eyes the first time and that’s exactly what she intended to do.
Dass wants to achieve the public’s direct involvement in photography as a whole concept. Her projects deepen import issues such as social, cultural and racial identity.
Humanae is a chromatic inventory that reflects on the colors beyond the borders of codes by referring to the pantone color scheme.
A serie of portraits with backgrounds dyed in the exact pantone tone extracted from a sample of 11×11 pixels of the portrayed’s face. The aim of this ongoing project is to create a catalog of all possible human skin tones.
Pantone colors are everywhere these days, but this one is by far the most exceptional and intriguing project!
Have a nice weekend!
