I HEARD THAT
People starving when tons of unsold food is thrown away globally because people couldn’t afford to purchase the food, that’s violence.

This is so important.
Brazilian fine art photographer Angelica Dass‘ series Humanae identifies portrait subjects from around the world using the Pantone color system. Using an 11×11 pixel swatch from her subjects’ faces, Dass matches them to corresponding Pantone colors, creating an abundant and unique catalog of skin tones that reflects the world’s diversity beyond the categorizations we have long been confined to. We recently asked her more about the ongoing project.

like yes we know living as a PoC/woman/LGBTQ/person of a marginalized group comes with oppression and institutionalized ugliness and yes the media should reflect the reality of the situation but hey that doesn’t mean every story about girls should be about how shitty it is to be a girl or how every story about LGBTQ should be about the bs you face, sometimes we want to live in a fantasy world too where we’re unapologetically awesome and our story isn’t always about how we have to overcome prejudice or deal with the harsh realities of being a PoC but about how we’re going to discover treasure planet and slay dragons and fight off criminals and save the universe
We wanna blow shit up too goddammit
