Over the course of a year, photographers Monique Eller and Bodine Koopmans portrayed Dutch twins. In the Exposerium of the Vrije Universiteit (Amsterdam) a selection of double portraits from the series Double Dutch is being exhibited.
Double Doutch is a collaboration with the Dutch Twin Register (Nederlandse Tweelingen Register - NTR) and during the opening of the exposition professor Dorret Boomsma held a lecture on the appearance and similarity of twins.
With Double Dutch, Monique Eller and Bodine Koopmans bring us loving and appealing double portraits of identical and fraternal twins. They are images of likeness and difference, diversity and unity. Young and old, adolescents and adults, different professions: biologist, lawyer, boxer, they all pass by. Double Dutch can be seen from the 3nd of February till the 5th of April in the Kunstruimte at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam.
