Getting the extra beating heart out of my chest

My sister and I were born 5 minutes apart. For 24 years we have shared the same room. At 24 she got married and followed her husband to Germany. Later, they both moved to the United States to continue their education. There she had her first child, then her second.

It’s been 21 years since we separated.

By confronting images from my mother’s family album and present pictures taken in America, I tackle notions of intimacy and distance that define my relationship to my twin sister.
