Photographer Angelica Dass Matches Skin Tones with Pantone Colors

1

For her ongoing project ‘Humanæ‘, photographer Angelica Dass takes portraits of people from all around the world to match their skin tones with the PANTONE® color system. To create a photo background of the same color, a sample of 11×11 pixels of the portrait’s face is extracted digitally. The photographer’s aim is to document every human skin tone on earth.

In a statement about her work, Dass says: “I understand photography as a dialogue from personal to global; like a game in which the personal and social codes are put at stake to be reinvented, a continuous flow between the photographer and the photographed, a bridge between masks and identities. For this reason, I use my work as a tool of exploration, questioning and searching for identity, for each own and others.”
