Description

Identical twins have fascinated others since the dawn of history. They are significant characters in almost every medium of human culture, from ancient myths to Playboy photo-shoots via Shakespearean dramas.

 

This lovingly curated selection of images provides a profound, charming, and often moving study of the depiction of twins in early photography. One can easily understand why they held such appeal for artists: dressed in identical clothes and seated in similar positions, they seem like a sort of trick photography, but without the trick.

 

Featuring essays from geneticists, artists, and critics, this collection aims to answer the age-old question of why, exactly, twins trigger such fascination.
