The Beauty of Human Skin in Every Colour

The Beauty of Human Skin in Every Colour

A Photographer's Quest to Reveal Humanity's True Colours

Angélica Dass’s photography challenges how we think about skin colour and ethnic identity. She has been internationally acclaimed through her pivotal project, Humanæ which is a collection of portrait photos of people revealing the true beauty of human colour.

The Brazilian photographer has portrayed over 3000 people from 13 countries, and 19 different cities from all over the world. She captures the extraordinary diversity and beauty of our uniqueness, yet shared humanity.

In this personal talk, hear about the inspiration behind her portrait project, and her pursuit to document humanity’s true colours rather than the untrue white, red, black and yellow associated with race.
