Wonderbra

August 27, 2008

To get the word out about their new ‘supersize’ bras Wonderbra used a simple but great concept. Real billboards are probably causing accidents all over London but from the safety of your home/office here is a wonderful way to kill a couple of hours. Check out the link to zoom in on the participants.

www.exactitudes.nl 0808

August 22, 2008

This is quite a cool  site from two Dutch Art photographers, they have been shooting dress and styles of particular groups and demographics in society, it is amazing how similar people do dress to one another. 

 

Rotterdam-based photographer Ari Versluis and stylist Ellie Uyttenbroek have worked together since October 1994. Inspired by a shared interest in the striking dress codes of various social groups, they have systematically documented numerous identities over the last 13 years. Rotterdam’s heterogeneous, multicultural street scene remains a major source of inspiration for Ari Versluis and Ellie Uyttenbroek, although since 1998 they have also worked in cities abroad.

They call their series Exactitudes: a contraction of exact and attitude. By registering their subjects in an identical framework, with similar poses and a strictly observed dress code, Versluis and Uyttenbroek provide an almost scientific, anthropological record of people’s attempts to distinguish themselves from others by assuming a group identity. The apparent contradiction between individuality and uniformity is, however, taken to such extremes in their arresting objective-looking photographic viewpoint and stylistic analysis that the artistic aspect clearly dominates the purely documentary element.
