ANGELICA DASS AND PANTONE’S MORE THAN 50 SHADES OF “FLESH”
According to the fashion world and much of the beauty world, "Flesh" as a colour is a strange pinky-Aryan blend. But anyone inhabiting the real world knows that the spectrum is much wider than that.
This, from FW: " Using Pantone’s categorical system of coloring, Brazilian artist, Angelica Dass extracts and labels her subjects’ exact shades after taking an 11×11 pixel sample from their faces. Her aim is to catalog, through a scientific process, all possible human skin tones"
A project to applaud.
Important for colour matching.
Photographers and retouching houses could also take note.
it would be great if we could all get skin tones correct.
Acknowledging that a diversity of shades exists is a start.
The project is called Humanae
