Zsuzsa Darab / Holding cohesion

You can choose your friends, but you can’t choose your family. Family is the most important human relationship. It defines our personality and our personal development. Apart from our parents, siblings have the most important role in the formation of our identity. In this project Zsuzsa Darab is exploring the sibling relationships. She tries to understand the various types of ties: from the healthy bonds to the unusual relationships. She is interested in the different roles in a power struggle between siblings – how they act and interact with each other. Darab wants to see the individuals in the common stories. In the book Sibling Bonds, Stephen Bank and Michael Kahn identified eight different sibling relationships. Zsuzsa Darab observed the subjects of her portraits based on these categories.
