Pic(s) of the Day: Exactitudes

Rotterdam photography duo Ari Versluis and Ellie Uyttenbroek (apparently working in pairs is all the rage?) started their Exactitudes project 14 years ago, with an eye on profiling the voluntary characteristics of social groups. On their fascinating website, the home page is a rainbow smattering of every ethnicity, dress, and pose imaginable, then divided into groupings of a dozen portraits each. A few of our favorites, after the jump.
