Erna and Hrefna Project 09-10

I came across something rather interesting while I was scrolling through tumblr, which led me to the website of Ariko Inaoka. A photographer who is documenting the life of two Icelandic twins yearly from 2009 at the age of 9, until they are 16.

"My intention for this project is to capture the very precious period of their growth from child to teenager, physically as well as psychologically. The relationship between identical twins is an interesting subject matter. I often hear that identical twins have telepathic connections between them. This is true with Erna and Hrefna. They are always together. They almost never fight each other. Spending time with them I feel such comfort in their companionship but at the same time I feel strange because I have never seen such a powerful connection between any two human beings. They say to me, "We dream same dreams sometimes"".

I find this so interesting, I love looking back on old photos of me, friends and family and seeing how we've changed over the years. I changed a lot from a child, to a teenager to an adult, I'd love to have photographs like these to look back on.
