Monette & Mady, Photo Series About Parisian Identical Twin Sisters

Monette and Mady by Maja Daniels

“Monette & Mady” by Swedish photographer Maja Daniels is a photo series about identical twin sisters, Monette and Mady, who live in Paris. The series combines documentary photos of the sisters as they go about their daily lives (in matching outfits), and staged photos of the duo.

Maja Daniels states:

When I approached them I was not surprised to discover that they often finish each other’s sentences and that they refer to themselves as « I » instead of « we ».

Neither Mady nor Monette have married or had children and they always eat the same kind of food in identical portions.

They do not just share a close relationship as sisters; as a couple they act, model and dance together and the city of Paris is their main stage….
