Couples swap styles in photo project

Couples swap styles in photo project

'Switcheroo' is a portrait project by photographer Hana Pesut where couples from all over the world are shown dressed in their own clothing and again in their partner's clothing within the same setting.

Pesut explores the concept of gender identity through this project as a person's dressing is commonly regarded as an expression of individuality and personal style.

The juxtaposition of physical traits and wardrobe choices of both genders yield amusing yet enlightening results.

Some portrait subjects smile while wearing clothes of the opposite gender, intrigued by the novelty of their partners' outfits.

However, the dramatic switch of clothing do not sit well with others who asked the photographer to hurry with the photo shoot.

With society's progress in gender equality and a growing diversity in fashion styles, people are not restricted to a binary dress code anymore.

Through these portraits, Pesut hopes to bring across the message that people should be able to be themselves and wear whatever they wish to.
