Uniformals

 

Uniformals is a fun project that I work on when I travel. Next to making the urban profiles and collecting the typologies in a city I try to photograph all the people that I meet wearing a uniform. The people are always photographed in their "role" at that very moment. The beauty of this project for me is that next to collecting uniforms as fashion you see how well people fit in the background just wearing that uniform. You will see that surprisingly enough people wear kind of less wear the same uniforms for the same role they play all over the world. Unfortunately I have never recorded people names while I photographed them. If you recognize yourself in one of these pictures, please contact me.

On the uniformals website you can see the whole project and filter the uniforms on countries or on occupation.
