House of Surprises

Throughout every stage of photography exists the act of encountering. As a photographer I’m confronted by my vision, or particular desire to photograph a specific subject amongst a crowd. I’m confronted by obfuscation; am I capturing the subject’s truth, or mine- does it matter? In many ways, the act of engaging with photography is like stepping in front of a mirror and encountering some version of the self. And I wonder how it is to have a physical reflection of the self with a twin; some person that is within and apart.

This ongoing series documents the annual twins festival in Twinsburg, OH; the same fair that Mary Ellen Mark attended while producing her body of work, Twins.
