About this title



Long a source of fascination, twins have often been a theme of myth and legend. The founding of Rome by Romulus and Remus is one of the many instances that spring to mind. Even when separated at birth, twins usually have uncannily similar tastes, habits and life experiences. In this landmark photographic study, Martin Schoeller uses his distinctive close-up portrait style to examine 40 sets of identical twins, capturing every subtle aspect of their facial structure and expressions. We notice the myriad similarities and the seemingly miniscule--yet significant--differences. Browsing this remarkable collection, you'll find yourself pondering how appearance and identity define our sense of our selves.

About the Author:

Born in Munich, Germany, in 1968, Martin Schoeller has become one of today's most prolific and well-known photographers.  Based in New York City, Schoeller's many editorial, commercial and personal projects have yielded masterful images, widely recognized for their infamous subjects and iconic power. 

Schoeller became a staff photographer for The New Yorker in 1999, joining the famed Richard Avedon. His work has also appeared in many additional magazines, including Vogue, TIME, Rolling Stone, National Geographic, GQ, and Vanity Fair, and has received awards from the American Society of Magazine Editors, Communication Arts, and the Society of Publication Designers, among other honors.

Schoeller's four books showcase a great range of the photographer's work, from a study of female bodybuilders to a compilation of Schoeller's signature "Close Up" portraits of celebrities, politicians, and unknowns. His most recent title, Identical, incorporates his Close-Up style to take an examined look at identical twins and multiples to explore the infinite subtleties in human appearance, and to challenge our habits of perceiving identity.
