“Erna and Hrefna are eleven-year-old identical twins from Iceland. I started to photograph them when they were nine years old in 2009, and this will be an ongoing project until they are sixteen years old. I will visit them every year. My intention for this project is to capture the very precious period of their growth from child to teenager, physically as well as psychologically. The relationship between identical twins is an interesting subject matter. I often hear that identical twins have telepathic connections. This is true of Erna and Hrefna. They are always together. They almost never fight with 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, ‘From time to time, we dream the same dreams.’”


"Socializing is as exhausting as giving blood. People assume we loners are misanthropes, just ­sitting thinking, ‘Oh, people are such a bunch of assholes,’ but it’s really not like that. We just have a smaller tolerance for what it takes to be with others. It means having to perform. I get so tired of communicating." Anneli Rufus

memories from childhood

Watching in awe as my grandparents braved his bees whilest fetching honey comb for me to look at when I was little girl. They was so calm and confidant and never afraid. In that one moment they became my heros

“Most people don’t have any idea about all the complicated life going on inside a hive. Bees have a secret life we don’t know anything about.” -August in The Secret Life of Bees

don't cry

What defines us as human?

attitudes to each other -tolerance
making art, making something out of nothing - turning junk into treasure
being part of something bigger than myself
finding my place in the universe, dicovering something
hope - that we are still here in the future
 an open mind

I want to leave behind regrets and fears
