It's been said that few relationships in life are as deep, intense and complicated as those of sisters. In response, photographer Sophie Harris-Taylor has spent the past two years photographing and interviewing more than 100 sets of siblings in an effort to understand and capture all that sisterhood stands for.

Accompanied by quotes and texts revealing each set of sisters’ individual stories, the viewer is offered a rare glimpse into the histories and complexities behind every unique relationship. Themes of trust, jealousy, memory, loss, petulance and unconditional love are explored in detail.

Shot using natural light and a soft touch that only a sister herself could bring, this work reminds us that through good or bad, love or hate, sisters will always be sisters.
