The people photogrpahed in 'Mimicry' by Maurits Giesen and Ilse Leenders are having a identity crisis. These solid color photos display two people dressed in the exact same outfit doing the exact same activity. This photo shoot suggests that perhaps humans are losing their uniqueness and joining the herd by mimicking what everyone else is doing.
Each photo has its own color theme, all of which are colors of the rainbow. In one image the two people featured are dressed as doctors in blue scrubs who are both shown face-down. Becoming a doctor is seen as a successful life so many people head in that direction. This leads to more people joining the mob instead of being individualistic.
'Mimicry' by Maurits Giesen and Ilse Leenders is somewhat surreal and makes one ponder about their own habits.
