A Lamb Named Beauty shows the life of two twin sisters Kimberly and Gwendolyn. The series started in 2007, when the sisters were 10 years old. I tried to give a candid impression about how the twins take care of each other, and the many animals that are gathered around them. The twins seem to live in a domain all of their own, taking strength from their love from one another.

In each of August Sander’s pictures Michael Somoroff has erased the subject, retaining only the background, removing what we have always believed to be the “essential element” — the subject, the portrait.
Uncanny, cruel, queasy, creepy, wonderful — all of these words fail to capture the haunting feeling of the images in this great new photobook — Enjoy!
A stunning series of portraits of people — shortly before and just after they die — is touring Europe now, and tackling one of the biggest remaining taboos in Western societies. Photos by
