Katie Parks & Sarah Parks, one from a series for the book Identical: Portraits of Twins, December 2012. Twins have long been a source of fascination. Even when separated at birth, identical twins can have uncannily similar tastes, habits and life experiences. In this landmark photographic study, Martin Schoeller uses his distinctive close-up portrait style to examine sets of identical twins and multiples. In capturing every subtle aspect of their facial structure, myriad similarities and seemingly miniscule - yet significant - differences are revealed, leaving one to ponder how appearance and identity are defined in individuals.
