A series of five stills depicting an evolutionary regression from modern humanity to our common ancestor.
Due to limitations in our scientific records, it is impossible to determine the exact ancestral lineage leading back to humanity’s original diversion from our primate ancestors. By analyzing and chronologizing ancestral remains, scientists are able to render a probable representation of humanity’s ancestry.
The purpose of this series was to establish a common identity between five members of this chronological lineage. Represented by the scar on the left cheek, the subjects of this series are united by their exposure to morbidity and mortality.
