Exactitudes: a contraction of exact and attitude.

I want to talk about the 13 year documentation of
Rotterdam-based photographer
Ari Versluis and stylist Ellie Uyttenbroek.
In Lifelounge they wrote:

"The two were inspired by a shared interest in the dress codes
of various social groups and have systematically documented
some of these identities over the last 13 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."
Here are some of the pictures:
