Today marks the first day of #MOPLA (Month of Photography Los Angeles) so to celebrate,I thought I'd share two different projects from the archives this weekend. Hope you enjoy!
.
In 2014, shortly before my twin sister married, I began working on a personal project that involved me photographing the two of us together. It was an experiment in a lot of ways. One, being that I wasn't used to photographing her at all. Two, we weren't very close at the time.
.
When you're a twin, you spend your whole life living parallel next to someone else. It's a feeling you can't describe until your life stops being so...parallel. When Marilyn got engaged I felt that shift. More than when she had moved out to go to college years prior.
.
At the start of this project my sister was kind enough to lend me her time and presence while I worked out the pictures (literally and metaphorically). I tried several different approaches and quickly became frustrated when I realized I had no clue what I was doing. In a desperate attempt to continue making (instead of quitting) I began photographing our bodies. Initially I expected to see a great contrast between the two of us (we are fraternal, not identical) but was surprisingly shocked at the similarities and subtle nuances.
