Portraits of Identical Twins at Age 50 Reveal Similarities and Differences Over Time


According to Confucius, 50 is the age when people begin to understand their fate. In an effort to visually explore this concept, Beijing-based photographer Gao Rongguo created this contemplative series, entitled Identical Twins, in which he photographs twin brothers and sisters from the Shandong province, where the artist grew up.

The project features a portrait of each twin placed side-by-side so that it appears as if the two are standing face to face. The contemplative series invites viewers to consider the differences between individuals, even those as similar as identical twins, and to explore how the world can alter both the inner self and the outward appearances of people throughout life.

Rongguo says, “He/she used to have the same face, living in the same family, but their lives changed due to various reasons after growing up.”
