The more I look, the more I dig this Tumbler by Angelica Dass. Before I read the background, I thought she had matched up the tones by eye, but she took a digital sample. Below is a statement, with a self-portrait.
Fotolog Book: A Global Snapshot for the Digital Age. Photo blogging is one of the few mediums that transcends languages, borders, and age groups, connecting people from around the world and enabling them to celebrate their common humanity.Humanae is a chromatic inventory, a project that reflects on the colors beyond the borders of our codes by referencing the PANTONE® color scheme.(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).The project development is based on a series of portraits whose background is dyed with the exact Pantone® tone extracted from a sample of 11x11 pixels of the portrayed’s face. The project’s objective is to record and catalog all possible human skin tones.
