For four years, Annabel Clark has been photographing sisters Lupita and Carmen Andrade. Her aim? To change the way people look at conjoined twins

When it was suggested that conjoined twins Lupita and Carmen Andrade could be separated, the 12-year-old girls were devastated. “Why would you want to cut us in half?” they asked their mother. As it happens, when they met with surgeons, the girls discovered separation was impossible because they share too many vital organs and their lower spine.

The girls were born in Veracruz, Mexico, and moved to the US on a medical visa at the age of two. They now live in New Milford, Connecticut, with their parents, sister Abby and dog Toby. Annabel Clark first photographed them four years ago and has been doing so ever since. Clark was worried about exploiting the girls, but Lupita and Carmen made sure there was no chance of that. Yes, life has its difficulties, but they are too busy with gymnastics and school plays and socialising and playing piano to think about exploitation or pity.
