An ethnic group is a category of people who identify themselves based on similarities, such as common ancestry, language, history, society, culture, or nation. This series immerses in the diversity of the races, seeking to explore these different ethnicities through colors, traces, and visual elements.
The Brazilian population is quite mixed. This was due to the mixture of different human groups that happened in the country. There are countless races that favored the formation of the Brazilian people. The main groups were indigenous peoples, Africans, European, and Asian immigrants.
Inspired by the book O Povo Brasileiro - work of the Brazilian anthropologist Darcy Ribeiro, launched in 1995 - ETHNIC honors this mixture and celebrates the equality of races, religions, and forms.
