‘Exactitudes is a series by Ari Versluis and Ellie Uyttenbroek. ‘Exactitudes’ stands for the contradiction between exact and attitude and is displaying the apparent contradiction between individuality and uniformity: For over 14 years Versluis and Uyttenbroek documented Rotterdam`s street scene, since 1998 they`ve extended the project to cities abroad as there were Beijing, Rio de Janeiro, Casablanca, Praia (Cabo Verde), New York and Bordeaux, London and Paris. Their work shows the different dress codes people use to distinguish themselves and to identify with social groups.
It´s a funny experience to visit their web-site, click the pictures and listen to the short audio description for each social group. Enjoy!
