The Photographer’s Playdate with Aperture: “The Colors We Share”
Join Aperture for a day of family fun with photographers Alice Proujansky and Angélica Dass as they explore with participants the themes of self-portraiture and identity through two photo activities.
In her book “The Colors We Share” Angélica shows us how wonderfully colorful humans really are. In the second activity participants will discover how to mix their own skin color with paint, and discover how they see themselves and others, through both similarities and differences.

Join Aperture for a Photographer’s Playdate with artists Alice Proujansky and Angélica Dass, as they explore with participants the themes of self-portraiture and identity through two photo activities.
Angélica Dass is a Brazilian artist of African, European, and Native American descent who lives in Spain. She is the creator of the internationally acclaimed Humanae Project, a collection of over 4,500 portraits from around the world that reveal the diverse beauty of human colors. The initiative has traveled to more than thirty countries across six continents—from the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, to the pages of National Geographic—to promote dialogue that challenges how we think about skin color and racial identity. Dass’s 2016 TED Talk exceeds two million views online. Her book The Colors We Share was published by Aperture this year.
Aperture, a not-for-profit foundation, connects the photo community and its audiences with the most inspiring work, the sharpest ideas, and with each other—in print, in person, and online. Created in 1952 by photographers and writers as “common ground for the advancement of photography,” Aperture today is a multi-platform publisher and center for the photo community.
