The Caucasian and North African French Faces (CaNAFF): A Face Database
In France, when studying intergroup relations between ethnicities, one usually contrasts Caucasian and North African individuals. Despite the presence of a large number of face databases in the literature, none of them contains Caucasian and North African faces similar to faces we can find in a usual French environment. To overcome this problem, we propose a new database: the Caucasian and North African French Faces (CaNAFF).
147 individuals, scattered on prototypicality across the Caucasian/North African continuum, have been photographed. These individuals displayed a neutral emotional expression and photos were taken under three eye gaze directions (right, frontal, and left), resulting in a total of 441 photos.
- The database photos may be used free of charge for non-commercial research purposes only.
- No attempts may be made to identify or contact the individuals depicted in the database (including the use of facial recognition software).
- Projects using the CaNAFF database must cite : …
