Exactitudes – Don’t let the initial visual clutter sway you from exploring this site. Click on any ol’ box of photos and dive into an innovative and unique art experience (photography to be exact). Exactitudes is a Dutch photographic exhibition, devised by Rotterdam-based photographer Ari Versluis and profiler Ellie Uyttenbroek. The two collaborators were “inspired by a shared interest in the striking dress codes of various social groups,” and “have systematically documented numerous identities over the last 14 years.
This truly extraordinary project is actually a multi-disciplinary art series, involving photography, geography, anthropology, even fashion. Check out Mohawks, Bimbos and Vagabonds, just to name a few of the Exactitudes amazing photo series. Each of these is zoomable (click on the photos) and accompanied by an intriguing aphoristic annotation, so enjoy the ride – I know I did.
