Since 1994 photographer Ari Versluis and profiler Ellie Uyttenbroek have systematically documented the dress codes of various social groups. They call their series Exactitudes: a contraction of exact and attitude. Their subjects are scouted on the streets, inviting them to be photographed at their studio with the only requirement of wearing the very exact same clothes they were wearing in their first encounter.
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. Exactitudes is an inquiry on how the self is constructed. Notions such as uniformity and individuality are at the core of this on-going project—how our desire to differentiate ourselves is also matched by a need to belong to a specific tribe.
