Identical Twins

2848101406I’m loving these images of twins Amanda and Emilia Musacchia wearing matching garments from Samantha Pleet’s SS ’15 collection. Is there anything more striking than twins in matching outfits? I’ve always had a fascination with identical twins, especially when they are clothed the same. Now, you might think how often does that happen? But I used to see these two women, identical twins, wearing the exact same outfit, every single day. It got me wondering about them, and their lives and what it feels like to have someone who is so genetically similar to you.

All that aside, I love these images for how simple they are and how they feel like film stills, which is always my favourite photography – it does not seem over produced, but rather, casual and honest, capturing moments in time and life as it happens.

SpOoOky Ghosts

ZWcxSdyDXvL02gwzHalloween is right around the corner, and to get into the spirit (no pun intended), I thought I’d share these images by artist, Angela Deane, of her hand painted generic ghosts on found photographs. While the ghosts are actually quite adorable, there is an undeniably haunting quality to Angela’s work. And with the images being film and polaroids, there is a feeling of nostalgia which only emphasizes the spooky notions these images conjure. Such a simple idea, and yet so striking and original. I’m an instant fan, and these images are getting me excited for the spooky Halloween shoot Ryan and I have planned.
