N. Kama ' TWO #3 ' . New York, 2007

Look Again! Tell me what you notice LOL! So I photographed my uncle's set. Fun Boys. Such a happy shot, they were so ready for the camera. This ones I can't really tell which is which....BUT the one on the left (Taiwo) is older and smaller while, the one on the right (Kehinde) is taller and a lil chubby. After Prof. Boon assigned us to read on one of the Fine Art Photography Masters: Diane Arbus ... Nacha became inspired by her  style, work & famous Photograph shot 40yrs ago, 1967 to be precise - IDENTICAL TWINS. I must say that photographing the world's most desperate children is a blessing. I love it. 

This Image, I dedicate to my childhood friends who are twins as well: Taiwo & Kehinde Talabi, Odion & Akehere Aghedo, Janet & Comfort, Chioma & Ifeoma Chime, Taiwo Taiwo & Kehinde Taiwo (aka KT Moneeeey). And to add my friend, Yonce's mom & Aunty..

Their smiles light up the room! wonderful
Nacha Kama: Thanks alot Scarlet
Belle image. Le fond blanc s'imposait en effet. De plus les mouvements de mains renforcent la ressemblance des deux sujets.
En revanche, un petit travail avec un logiciel aurait permis de modérer quelque peu la lumière qui écrase trop les visages, et aurait permis de renforcer la couleur foncée de la peau des deux enfants.
Bravo pour l'idée et la pause en tout cas.
Nacha Kama: Merci pour des indicateurs, toutefois ceci fonctionne pour moi. Merci pour s'arrêter près
