Ariko Inaoka

Japanese photographer Ariko Inaoka has shot the beautiful Icelandic twins Erna and Hrefna every summer for five years. She has been visiting them every summer since 2009 to photograph them and document their progress through adolescence and their special relationship with each other.

I often hear that identical twins have telepathic connections between them. This is true with Erna and Hrefna” Inaoka claims. “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’.
