We've collected a few beautiful faces below, but you can see her entire work HERE.

(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)

About Angelica:
Angélica Dass (Rio de Janeiro, 1979)

"I understand photography as a dialogue from personal to global; like a game in which the personal and social codes are put at stake to be reinvented, a continuous flow between the photographer and the photographed, a bridge between masks and identities. For this reason, I raise my work as a tool of exploration, questioning and searching for identity, for eachown and others."
