Angélica Dass’s photography challenges how we think about skin color and ethnic identity

Angélica Dass’s photography challenges how we think about skin color and ethnic identity. In this personal talk, hear about the inspiration behind her portrait project, Humanæ, and her pursuit to document humanity’s true colors rather than the untrue white, red, black and yellow associated with race.

HUMANÆ – WORK IN PROGRESS

Humanæ is a “work in progress” by the Brazilian Angélica Dass, who intends to deploy a chromatic range of the different human skin colors. Those who pose are volunteers who have known the project and decide to participate. There is no previous selection of participants and there are no classifications relating to nationality, gender, age, race, social class or religion. Nor is there an explicit intention to finish it on a specific date. It is open in all senses and it will include all those who want to be part of this colossal global mosaic. The only limit would be reached by completing all of the world’s population.

Wednesday marks the opening of the work’s first appearance in London, as part of the No Turning Back exhibition at the city’s fledgling Migration Museum, while in October Humanae will open in the U.S., in Kingsport, Tennessee.
