The Uniform of Humanity

I first read about this project on the glamourai and I found it fascinating. I've reposted what she wrote below.

"Every society and subculture, no matter how obscure, has its own sartorial norms. whether you are personally inclined to escape this fact or embrace it, you'll be struck by the stark reality presented by exactitudes {exact + attitudes}, an artistic observation by photographer Ari Versluis and social profiler Ellie Uyttenbroek. These two collaborators have cataloged hundreds of comparative street style studies over the last 14 years."

It's kinda fascinating and disconcerting at the same time how we tend to dress alike and aspire for the same looks.
