Face to face.

I was wondering what we humans might look like in the future – considering our global travelling habits and the unpredictable miracle of love – when I stumbled across David Trood‘s images that kind of answered the question for me…

He took photos of 335 men and 335 women representing the world’s population according to the 2009 ethnic demographics. He then overlapped all the photos and above are the amazing images produced.

23% are Chinese
18% are Indian
15% are African ( North, South, East and West Africa respectively)
11% are Middle Eastern
9% are from Latin America
8% are from South East Asia
7% are from Northern Europe
5% are from the USA
4% are from Southern and Eastern Europe
