While scientists decode the human genome, what’s a photographer to do? Angelica Dass has the perfect answer: she has started a fascinating project to document every single tone of the human skin. It’s a chromatic inventory, if you please, of the human race usibg the PANTONE® color scheme*.
The project development is based on a series of portraits whose background is dyed with the exact Pantone® tone extracted from a sample of 11×11 pixels of the portrayed’s face. The project’s objective is to record and catalog all possible human skin tones.
She pegs herself at PANTONE 7522C.
