The same parents, past, sometimes even one bed and clothes. All these factors are unlikely to say what kind of relations will develop between siblings. As a mother of two daughters I am always sensitive to the question of relations between them and often catch my eye on other siblings’ lives. What makes one relationship a warm and supportive while another one is conflictual and disharmonious? Birth order, age, number of siblings, level of parents’ contact - everything can influence the relations. So I photograph sisters in different mood, poses but they are still in one frame.
