Hand in Hand presents the genetic, experiential, and psychological connections between my twin brother and myself. Found and contemporary photographs of us and our childhood home contextualize the setting of our lives as both children and adults. This reflection on the past helps describe how this unique experience influenced our identities over time. In many images the color palette references the gender coding we were subjected to growing up, which was exaggerated for us as twins. The scrutiny of our physical differences was often emphasized in a similar way. Over time, our closeness allowed us to disregard the traditional ideas of gender that were projected onto us because we shared so many gendered objects and experiences. As a result of sharing both masculine and feminine ideals, our identities evolved to significantly overlap. Despite always having a positive relationship, this body of work hints at our shared struggles with mental illness, an issue that we were equally predisposed to as twins. Diptychs and repeating motifs such as shadows and mirrors are pervasive in the work, reinforcing our connection and matters that go beyond the physical. Hand in Hand provides a window into a unique consciousness and our joint navigation into adulthood.
