Brazilian artist and photographer Angelica Dass started a creative project called Humanæ. Humanæ  is a chromatic inventory, a project that investigates on the colors beyond the borders of our perception and referencing to the PANTONE ® color system. It consists in a series of portraits whose background is filled with the exact shade of color extracted from a sample of 11×11 pixels subject’s complexion. The ultimate aim is to record and catalog, through a scientific process, all possible human skin tones. Now, that’s an ambitious goal.

A life-long passion for design and innovation led Davide to New York City, where he lives with his family.
