Ariko Inaoka is a Japanese-born photographer currently living and working in Kyoto. We first stumbled upon Ariko after we saw her ongoing dreamy series, 'Erna and Hrefna' and instantly fell in love. Since 2009, she has been documenting the story and relationship of Icelandic identical twins, Erna and Hrefna. She first met the girls four years ago when travelling and returns to Iceland every year to take pictures of them and capture their own coming of age experiences.
We love the ethereal and enchanting quality of the series and suggest you check out the rest of her work via her website.
