Seeing Double with Chinese Couples


It’s a common phenomenon in China. You’ll be walking down the street, minding your own business, when all of a sudden you spot it. Two people wearing the exact same outfit. And it’s not by accident either. They even have the accessories to match. I’ve spotted girlfriends and boyfriends, entire families, grown men…it seems everyone is susceptible to the matching-clothes epidemic. Since photographing random strangers is completely acceptable in China, I took advantage of the situation and sniper-snapped pictures of all the doppelgängers I could find. For what would surely be a faux-pas in the States, outfit-matching sure seems to be a hit in China.
