Inspired by National Geographic project which tried to find the most typical human face, David Trood has made similar project but he tried to find the most average human face.
Here's his story.
100 Danish People
"The first 'Face Of' image that I ever made was 100 Danish people from a quantum healing seminar I was assigned to cover. My job was to get portraits of the ten guest speakers. At a point through the seminar one of the guest speakers, a sound therapist from USA, ask the entire audience to say together the words 'We are one.' It sounded incredible. The whole auditorium in the Royal Danish Hospital University resonated with one human voice coming from everywhere and from everyone.
100 14-Year-Old Danish Kids
"Following the first image I then went and did a similar experiment at my children's school. Both the 4th grade and the 8th grade. Dividing the number of subjects by 100 gave the percent opacity each image needed to give all portraits an equal part of the final image."
Female Face of Humanity
"During this time I was writing a book about my life as a photographer. I was trying to write about and illustrate the source of my creative insight. As the answer to that question was 'everywhere and everyone,' I decided to try and put a face to the voice that we all go around with. Some of us can hear it more clearly than others but I think everybody has some sort or another inner reflection. For me the face of humanity represents that entity within the human race.
Male Face of Humanity
100 Faces of Greenland
100 10-Year-Old Danish Kids
100 Faces of Thailand
"The face of Greenland and the face of Thailand are both using 100 men from selected areas of those countries."
