Double Identity

Identical twins endure a particular struggle with identity. Their search for self is dominated by their twin status - an intense bond defined by conflict, companionship, love, competition, sharing, separation and, of course, a shared physical appearence. It means each twin has two identities - as an individual, and as a twin.

My series aims to avoid direct physical comparisons between twins while allowing the viewer to acknowledge and accept the twins’ similarities and differences. For the twin, it gives them a different perspective on their double identities and poses questions about their relationship and their desire - or lack of desire - to live completely separate lives.
