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 16 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.

The Art of Victorian mourning Jewelry

Hairwork was a common practice during the mid-nineteenth century. Hairwork jewelry became an expression of Victorian sentimentality.
The pieces were made of the most lasting material that survives us, hair. The objects were supposed to be worn close to the body of the mourner symbolizing a lasting physical connection.

jewelry quickly went out of fashion after the death of Queen Victoria in 1901.
