‘no. 18’ from the series ‘group therapy’ by lee gainer

american artist lee gainer examines groups and our desire to belong with the series ‘group therapy’. this photographic series collects images of different groups all in a uniform of sorts. the subjects range from children’s soccer teams to surgeons and marching bands. the artist has removed the identity of each individual leaving only the common uniform intact. as gainer points out, ‘when these idea or interests require a certain uniform, … , it serves to  underscore our sense of belonging and our perceived acceptance within the group. the series will be featured in the fourth edition of the exposure project book.
