“Ari Versluis is the photographer behind Exactitudes, a long-running photographic series that documents and classifies everyday individuals in their social contexts. Together with profiler Ellie Uyttenbroek, Ari places a  similar group of individuals in a uniform framework, uniting them in their similar features while celebrating the small differences in their genetics, cultural uniforms and shared histories. A contraction of the words ‘exact’ and ‘attitudes’, Exactitudes is a study in humanity – an anthropological journey through cities, towns and villages, through class systems and neighbourhoods and family groups.”
