Twin Portraits

So many creative photographer's out there...I enjoyed seeing this in my sisters subscription of National Geographic a while back.


Talk about uncanny! New York-based photographer Martin Schoeller (who you remember from here) recently took photographs of identical twins for an interesting National Geographic story. The intricate details of the photographs, caught by Schoeller's professional camera, exposes every detail of the subjects' faces. By putting portraits of twins side by side, it's easy to see how remarkably similar the two faces look. In fact, it's sometimes hard to tell one from the other!

Check out the National Geographic article to read more about the twins phenomenon.

As they say, "They have the same piercing eyes. The same color hair. One may be shy, while the other loves meeting new people. Discovering why identical twins differ—despite having the same DNA—could reveal a great deal about all of us."
