Humanae – The Human Pantone Swatches

2012-07-10 // art unusual photography

Humanae” is a superb project of the Spanish artist photographer Angelica Dass, who made a huge Human Pantone Swatches, with no fewer than 150 models, corresponding to 150 Pantone colors. Truly awesome!

“Humanae is a chromatic inventory, a project that reflects on the colors beyond the borders of our codes by referencing the PANTONE® color scheme. (PANTONE® Guides are one of the main classification systems of colors, which are represented by an alphanumeric code, allowing to accurately recreate any of them in any media. It is a technical industrial standard often called Real Color). 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.”
