Some Say It Is Disturbing, Some Say It Is Beautiful: The Photos of Iceland Twins Mesmerize From The First Glance
These photos of Iceland twins Erna and Hrefna are truly bewitching. Caught by Ariko Inaoka, Japanese photographer, it seems they show the very bottoms of their souls.
Ariko met them when they were 6 when she traveled to Iceland from New York in search of inspiration from nature landscapes.
The moment she met the twins she realized that they have such a strong connection, it was like they shared the same spirit.
Ariko started to take photos of them every year to see them grow and develop.
She told The Guardian, they even did not have to pose.
They acted so naturally, suggesting their own ideas. Both did ballet so always moved with grace and elegance.
The photographer loved working with them so much, that she returned to Iceland every summer to make shots of Erna and Hrefna.
She tried to work with other twins, but she could never find that special deep connection those girls shared.
They complete each other's personalities in the most wonderful way.
Girls are always enthusiastic about the photo-shoots with Ariko.
The photos of Ariko are truly creative and artistic.
The twins' father supports the project too.
Opinions are split though, some see them as beautifully mystical and meaningful.
For others the pictures create a disturbing impression.
But definitely they can’t leave you indifferent.
The girls seem to be the heart and the soul of Iceland itself.
