Monette and Mady are identical twins. They have lived their whole life closely together and are,

as they say,


I used to see them on the streets near my house now and then but mainly on Sundays at our local fruit and vegetable market. I was instantly fascinated by their identical outfits and synchronized corporal language. When I finally approached them I was not surprised to discover that they often finish each other\’\’s sentences and that they refer to themselves as « I » instead of « we ».

Neither Mady nor Monette are married or have children. They live their lives closely together and have created an image as one. "If we ever go out dressed in different outfits people will come up to us wondering why we are arguing. Perhaps it has become even more important for them to see us dressed identically than it is for us."

Mady and Monette are true performers; they act,

sing and dance. Sometimes they don't quite see why I might be interested in documenting their everyday life or understand how fascinated I am by what seems so natural and normal to them.

Maja Daniels is a Swedish independent photographer currently based in London,

UK. Having studied journalism,

sociology and photography,

her work focuses on social documentary and portraiture with an emphasis on human relations in a western,

contemporary environment. By using sociology as a frame of research and approach to her photographic work,

she finds it a powerful combination when trying to focus on the interaction between man and society.

Apart from her long-term project-based work she is regularly commissioned by the weekly and monthly press such as The Guardian Weekend Magazine,

Financial Times Magazine,

The Independent,

Monocle Magazine as well as humanitarian organisations and cultural institutions such as UNICEF and the European Commission. She is currently represented by Picturetank in Paris,
