Taking a unique, creative and visually appealing approach to address the issue of skin color, this artistic series by Angélica Dass uses a color pantone to make a point. 

The ‘Humanæ’ project by the Brazilian Angélica Dass is a continuous work-in-progress that the photographer and artist wants to keeps running using a chromatic range to categorize all the different human skin colors.

Using volunteers to pose for her artistic series, Dass does not select the volunteers according to classifications like nationality, gender, age, race, social class or religion. The artist does not want to showcase this project with a date or a finished time line, she doesn’t want it to look a certain way and she definitely doesn’t want it to appeal to a certain type of person.

“The only limit would be reached by completing all of the world’s population,” says Dass about the project.
