Yes, we have all seen and met twin sisters before, but none of them like… Lara and Mara Bawar. That, I assure you. Born in Sao Paolo, Brazil 12 years ago, they can be shortly described as albine twins of a rare, particular beauty. To discover them, 26-year-old Swiss photographer Vinicius Terranova, who has dedicated them and their older 14-year old sister Sheila, the Flores Raras project – a poem of beautiful and rare creatures.
“I wanted to animate the debate in art and fashion, show that diversity is not a negative concept, ” he explained.
The photography project comes in the best of times, when the issue of diversity is slowly but surely making its way into a world who needs it most. Their parents come from Guinea Bissau, a West African country where albinos are massacred because of cruel popular beliefs.
“Growing up like that was incredible. We like being unique”, say the girls.
The Bawar sisters are already driving the Internet crazy, but this comes as no surprise, and is proof that something is finally changing.
