Brazilian fine art photographer Angelica Dass‘ series Humanae identifies portrait subjects from around the world using the Pantone color system. Using an 11×11 pixel swatch from her subjects’ faces, Dass matches them to corresponding Pantone colors, creating an abundant and unique catalog of skin tones that reflects the world’s diversity beyond the categorizations we have long been confined to. We recently asked her more about the ongoing project.

I got lost a long time ago, it was a Saturday in a big crossing in Barcelona. A few years later I found myself again reading a book in Japan. I remember the details precisely. Got lost again in a Williamsburg apartment in New York. That was the last time. Found myself back again last Thursday in a stone house that my great-great-grandparents bought in the late 1800. The cat came by too, and I chose a name for her. Sophie. There’s no one else here to talk to but me, and it feels so good to touch her. We’re getting to know each other, I’ve changed since Brooklyn. Thank you for coming back.
Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.
Take someone who doesn’t keep score,
who’s not looking to be richer, or afraid of losing,
who has not the slightest interest even
in his own personality: he’s free.
