Erna and Hrefna

Erna and Hrefna are identical twins from Iceland who have been photographed every year by Japanese photographer Ariko Inaoka, beginning when they were nine years old in 2009. Ariko intends to visit them every year until they are sixteen years old.

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 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.”
