Hermanas Martorell - Barcelona, 2017

Kary and Chus are two sisters from Barcelona. Kary is four years older than Chus. Chus left Barcelona several years ago to live in Costa Rica. She visits Kary every year for three or four weeks. These two sisters were very different when they were young, but the older they get the more they look alike. It’s as if ageing with the absence of one another makes their bodies want to compensate this absence so that when they look at themselves in the mirror they recognise a part of the sister that is far away. This series of pictures depicting the daily tasks of the sisters represents sisterhood and the strong link that can exist between two people throughout the years, even if they live apart.

Series of 8 pictures influenced by the twins of the film The Shining (1980) and show an unbreakable link between twins, which border both, comical and creepy. Work in collaboration with Meritxell Cortés.
