Series with my sister

 

I am blessed with a younger sister that looks just like me, despite 8 years of age difference. Sarah is a big inspiration to me. Not just because of our resemblance, also because of the intimacy that comes naturally between us sisters and perhaps also the jealousy we have towards each others life. Without wanting to be- or becoming the other, an exchange takes place between us two. A fusion almost. In some videos we perform the same act, in other videos we wear masks of each others face or we play games that we are ‘officially’ too old for. It seems to be a ritual; not one where the one guides the other, but one where we encourage each other and hold up a mirror.

Sarah was 13 when we first started making these video’s and is currently 16 years old. I am very curious to see how and if our aging will change our relationship, the way we interact and the way we look.
