    Memory of Colors is a fascinating app for iPad and iPhone from Fotopedia, creator of the first collaborative encyclopedia, which takes viewers on a photographic journey through disappearing cultures around the world, and shares a message of peace, tolerance and respect. Memory of Colors follows on from Fotopedia’s first two apps, Heritage and National Parks, and features a rich collection of portraits that provide a look at humanity’s fragile diversity in over 18 countries. The coffee-table app is assembled in an infinite color palette, where each color represents a facet of human culture. Created by respected photographer Jaime Ocampo-Rangel, it took over 12 years to complete, requiring a colossal amount of research, logistics, and diplomacy. It was first exhibited at UNESCO’s headquarters in 2010.

    Here’s a breakdown of some of Memory of Colors’ key features, courtesy of Fotopedia:

    • More than 1,300 spectacular high-resolution portraits
