“There are different explanation about the fate, but the age of fifties is often called the years to know it. So, I decided to photograph identical twins over the age of fifty. He/she used to have the same face, living in the same family, but their lives changed due to various reasons after growing up. I take these identical twins in their fifties face-to-face. This is a way similar to the way one looking into the mirror, “Taking people as mirror, one can know its gain and loss by revealing oneself”. (Artist’s statement)
