Porto Alegre International Photography Festival

The 12th edition of the Porto Alegre International Photography Festival, at the Ibere Camargo Foundation, addresses contemporary photographic production related to population dispersions and identity conflicts, involved in both national and ethnic disputes and personal dilemmas. This crisis puts in check the idea of identity as a fixed instance, aiming at more fluid and floating formats. The idea of the hybrid imposes itself as a reality in the production of national, racial and ethnic references if these concepts continue to be useful as a description of contemporary reality and of forms of identity that are no longer fully original, even if they have traces of them.


Humanae comes with the strong intention of abolishing discrimination and encouraging dialogue about the stereotypes and prejudices that condition our perceptions

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.
