Ari Versluis & Ellie Uyttenbroek: Exactitudes

Freude am Ver-Schubladen von Mitmenschen? Die beiden zeigen, wie das geht: künstlerisch, anthropologisch, witzig.

Photographer Ari Versluis and profiler Ellie Uyttenbroek have worked together since October 1994. Inspired by a shared interest in the striking dress codes of various social groups, they have systematically documented numerous identities over the last 19 years. (…)
They call their series Exactitudes: a contraction of exact and attitude. By registering their subjects in an identical framework, with similar poses and a strictly observed dress code, Versluis and Uyttenbroek provide an almost scientific, anthropological record of people’s attempts to distinguish themselves from others by assuming a group identity.
