Her photos portray people from Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Winterthur, Bergen, Saegu, Addis Ababa, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Paris and Chicago.

“Humanæ  is a chromatic inventory, a project that reflects on the colors beyond the borders of our codes by referencing the PANTONE® color scheme.”

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

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.”
