In the photographer's words: "After a short visit to my aunt's house, these two twins came up in the living room and started talking to me in their own language. As I did not quite understood what they were saying, we exchanged simple words in order to better communicate. As I capture the scene, they were making fun of my pronunciation and accent. I really had a great time with them."
