Skin Tone Catalog Based On The Pantone Color System [Pics]
Created by photographer Angelica Dass, 'Humanae' is a chromatic inventory featuring a series of portraits.
Photographer Angelica Dass created a chromatic inventory that “reflects on the colors beyond the borders of our codes by referencing the Pantone color scheme.” ‘Humanae‘ is a work in progress based on a series of human portraits.
The background is dyed with the exact Pantone tone extracted from a sample of 11×11 pixels of the model’s face. The objective of this project is to record and catalog all possible human skin tones. Dass writes:
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.
