The Mystery of Mady and Monette

Photographer Maja Daniels was looking to document the relationship between age and identity when she met the Parisian identical twins, Mady and Monette. The two sisters are not only inseparable, but have acted, modeled and performed together for most of their lives.  Matching outfits, meals and gestures, Daniels documents the twins in every day life and in performance, making for a surrealist mirror crossing of identities and intentions. The photographs are intriguing and disorienting, without any hint of who is who. But as Daniels captures these enigmatic lives, it doesn’t seem to matter. “As we enter the game orchestrated by the sisters…” she says “We ask ourselves the question: ‘Is that the same person twice?'”
