This Powerful Project Matches Skin Tones to Pantone Swatches

The world is made up of people of many different colors, but until now, I've never heard of anyone who has actually attempted to catalog them and match them with their Pantone shades, and yet that's exactly what Brazilian Angelica Dass has done with Humanae.

Humanae is a work in progress, sure, but it's also completely done with volunteers who know about the project, and there are no restrictions for who can be involved, so it's much more liberal than previous attempts. Even though it's ongoing, what I've seen so far is pretty cool, and even though it may seem odd to lump somebody into a box of any kind, it does open up the world and show us that people come in all colors, and we should embrace each and every one. As written on Dass's site: "[The project] 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."
