the subject of siblings

On a whim I decided to photograph my children in how they relate to each other. I set out to capture the reality of sibling rivalry: pushing, shouting, fighting and a smidge of loving. But on this day there was none of that. Only a passive acceptance of each others’ presence and I was warmly reminded of how reassuring life can be with siblings.

β€œIt’s a commonly expressed and rather nice, romantic notion that we are all “sisters” and “brothers.” Let’s be real. Fact is, we might be better served to accept that we are all siblings. Siblings fight, pull each other’s hair, steal stuff, and accuse each other indiscriminately. But siblings also know the undeniable fact that they are the same blood, share the same origins, and are family. Even when they hate each other. And that tends to put all things in perspective.”

  1. Love! With all of the “crazy” that goes on in my house, I know thru it all they really love and need each other. Love the story your images tell, one that I can very much relate too!
