One face, a thousand looks. Buenos Aires

Carolina Sagona, teacher at the Presidente Roca School did a very special job with her students using Humanae’s educational tools. The children first looked for their own skin color and painted their self-portraits which were then joined together in a collective book. Each portrait was cut into three parts so that the faces of all the children could be mixed in an infinite number of ways.

We learned that diversity can be worked on through art and that we are a great tool for building a more tolerant and empathetic school community

About Humanae

Humanae is a photographic work in progress by artist Angélica Dass. Currently composed of almost 4,000 portraits from volunteers all around the globe, Humanæ pursues to document humanity’s true colors and bring up a critical reflection on the white, red, black and yellow false labels associated with race. The project does not select participants and there is no date set for its completion.  It is a journey of open-ended possibilities that enriches the way we see ourselves, beyond faces and colors. Nowadays, the artist has been doing portraits in 36 different cities and 20 different countries.
