Cloned Twin Photos of China’s One-Child Policy Children

“Two of Us” is a project started in 2009 by Chinese photographer Fan Shi Shan. It involves cloned photographs of people who grew up as only children due to China’s one-child policy. Fan writes,

The One-child Policy in China restricts the number of children a married urban couple can have to one. In fact, nearly every Chinese born after 1980 in urban, including myself, is only child with no siblings. The policy is enforced at provincial level through fines and other punishments, leaving a result of over 100 million only child in China.
