The Faces of Tomorrow

This is pretty cool!
This is an excerpt from the website The Faces of Tomorrow

"The Face of Tomorrow is a concept for a series of photographs that addresses the effects of globalization on identity.  The large metropolises of the world are magnets for migrants from all parts of the planet resulting in new mixtures of peoples. What might a typical inhabitant of this new metropolis look like in one or two hundred years if they were to become more integrated? 

In Turkey and particularly in Istanbul, situated as it is at the crossroads of Europe and Asia, of the Mediterranean and the Black Sea, you can see how this process has been at work over the last thousand years as waves of humanity from Central Asia, Arabia, Greece and Rome have been absorbed. The resulting population is fairly uniform suggesting that if you could combine all the faces in a city right now you would be looking at the future face of that city.

The Face of Tomorrow attempts to find this face by taking photographs of the current inhabitants and compositing their faces to create a typical face. What we get is a new person - a mix of all the people in that city. A face that doesn't exist right now, but a face, it seems, of someone quite real the Face of Tomorrow"

The picture below is a picture of the average woman from all the stated countries.




This other website does some fun side by sides of men and women, with the collage in the middle of the photos that contributed to the concept.  Click HERE and scroll to through the different faces of the world! 

In my opinion, the "white" men kind of look the same but the women all look different!

  1. Impiegando design tradizionale del club, il kit a casa Pescara 16-17 presenta un aspetto a strisce in bianco e blu. Un modo interessante costruito V-collare e dettagli sui polsini e orlo completano il look unico della maglia Pescara 2016-17, che si combina con pantaloncini bianchi e calzettoni.maglie calcio 2017,

  2. Our Dolphins Flag is constructed of polyester, measures 3x5 feet, and has two metal grommets for attaching to a traditional flagpole, tailgate pole, or our 6' aluminum flagpole. The perimeter of our Dolphins Flag is double stitched and the Officially Licensed NFL Miami Dolphins team logos are dye sublimated into the flag so they won't peel. Due to its large size, this flag is also perfect to hang in your game room, sports room, office, or kids room.
