Fatou, 25, and Farida, 19, are Senegalese half sisters with a very interesting relationship. As the eldest of the two, Fatou leads a path of success, self-confidence, and boldness. However, Farida finds it difficult to follow through with the lane her sister has paved. Time and time again, Fatou attempts to groom her younger sister into being much more self-assured, though it often leads to arguments and disconnections.
This image really communicates the connection between these two sisters but also hints at tension below the surface. It is beautiful to look at.
