The Two Parallels – Ten
Photo: Karina Bikbulatova

This black-and-white series is about Russian sisters abandoned by their father who live parallel lives. Gulshat lives with a poor family in a small village, while Alina lives in the city, studies in a prestigious school and does ballet. ‘They meet once a year in a small village, [where they] communicate, play, weave braids to each other, but don’t know that they are sisters.’
