A work in progress, Brazilian photographer Angelica DassHumanae project has so far been two years in the making with the aim to capture “a chromatic range of the different human skin tone colors.” Having so far shot photographs of over 2,500 people across the world, Dass continues to develop her human Pantone range in an attempt to capture the full spectrum of tones that make up humankind.

Extracting an 11×11 pixel image of each face, Dass matches the skin tone with a perfect pantone which forms the background of each piece. Surely an endless project, given her open ended aim to capturing the entire world, the goal of the series is to spark discussion on ethnic identity, disregarding factors like nationality, economic status, age or aesthetic standards.
