On the twen­tieth anni­ver­s­a­ry of its publi­ca­ti­on, this volu­me reprints and expands upon what has beco­me a beloved pho­to­book classic.

Inspi­red by the striking dress codes of various soci­al groups, Rot­ter­dam-based pho­to­gra­pher Ari Vers­lu­is and pro­fi­ler Ellie Uyt­ten­bro­ek have been sys­te­ma­ti­cal­ly docu­men­ting the group iden­ti­ties they have encoun­te­red on the stre­ets of cities around the world sin­ce 1994. They call their series “Exac­titu­des,” as a con­trac­tion of “exact” and “atti­tu­de.” By pre­sen­ting their sub­jects in an iden­ti­cal framework–each mem­ber of a group is posed simi­lar­ly against a white ground–Versluis and Uyt­ten­bro­ek crea­te an almost sci­en­ti­fic record of people’s attempts to dis­tin­guish them­sel­ves from others by assuming a group iden­ti­ty, mani­fes­ted in a strict dress code.

Simul­ta­neous­ly rigo­rous­ly docu­men­ta­ry and artis­tic, the pro­ject tests the appa­rent con­tra­dic­tion bet­ween indi­vi­dua­li­ty and uni­for­mi­ty, sub­verts the idea of “street style” and dis­rupts con­ven­ti­ons of docu­men­ta­ry street pho­to­gra­phy (the series has been cal­led “August San­der and Euge­ne Atget tur­ned on their heads by Bernd and Hil­la Becher” by pho­to­gra­pher and cri­tic Gil Blank).

For this twen­tieth-anni­ver­s­a­ry edi­ti­on, Vers­lu­is and Uyt­ten­bro­ek have pro­du­ced 19 new series. The sub­cul­tures of Rotterdam’s hete­ro­ge­neous street sce­ne remain a major source of inspi­ra­ti­on for them, alt­hough they have also visi­ted St. Peters­burg, Zurich, Milan, Bei­jing, Rio de Janei­ro, Casa­blan­ca, Pra­ia (Cabo Ver­de), New York, Bor­deaux, Lon­don and Paris.
