I loved this amusing and interesting project featured on the often-very-interesting Slate slideshow yesterday. Photographer Ari Versluis and his creative partner Ellie Uyttenbroek specialize in cataloging sartorial "types". Once they've observed enough people in a city for a "type" to emerge, they invite people with that style to come into their studio to be photographed, and they then combine their images. Great fun, and a reminder that none of us are really as creatively attired as we think we are.

The project website is here, although I had some trouble getting it to work consistently.
