Exactitudes




Inspired by a shared interest in the striking codes of various social groups, Rotterdam based photographer Ari Versluis and Ellie Uyttenbroek have systematically documented numerous identities over the past 14 years. 

They call their series Exactitudes: a contraction of exact and attitude. By registering their subjects in identical framework they have created an almost scientific, anthropological record of people's attempts to distinguish themselves from others by assuming a group identity. The apparent contraction between individuality and uniformity reflects an interesting human paradox (been waiting to use that one - thanks Em!)
