Yimei Wang, who is an identical twin, employs portraiture to explore the role of appearances in twin relationships. In each portrait, Yimei and a stranger wear identical clothing and pose for the camera.  She explains, “ Whether photographing my sister or strangers, I focus on the connection between the subjects, a link that oscillates between comfort and discomfort, familiarity and distrust.”
