I know I’m not alone in my deep-rooted fascination with twins, identical or otherwise, and Czech-born, London-based photographer Hana Knizova is just one of many to help me indulge it. Her series Family Matters features ten pairs of womb-sharing siblings, shrouded in like-minded mystery and wearing similar attire, and draws upon aspects of their relationship in carefully composed and almost classical portraits. They’re beguiling and somewhat mystical to look it.
Family Matters isn’t the only project in her portfolio to catch our eye, though. Hana has worked for an awe-inspiring breadth of clients, including Dazed and Confused, The Telegraph, several bands, fashion designers and on magazine editorials, not to mention her work having featured in an exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery. One of the shots from Family Matters was selected for the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize exhibition, which goes some way to demonstrating the calibre of Hana’s work. We strongly recommend you keep an eye on this one.
