Live concerts, at their best, can leave you elevated and wanting more. Not so for the musicians, who , at their best, are left exhausted and wanting respite. Nice photo essay showing the before and after effects of a band that has given it’s all. Photography by Brandon Anderson.

Photographer Ari Versluis and profiler 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 19 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 many 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.

Interesting. I think we will see a significant uptick in innovative camera/phone launches from the mainstream camera makers in the months ahead. Link: Panasonic puts a 1-inch sensor and a Leica lens on new CM1 smartphone | The Verge.
