When I arrived in my state capital, Goiânia, I had the honor of photographing the conjoined twins Maria Clara and Maria Eduarda. They are two months old, waiting for the separation surgery that will happen in August, 2015 at Hospital Materno Infantil (HMI) in Goiânia.

The girls come from a poor family, and they are from Salvador, capital of Bahia state. Maria Clara and Maria Eduarda are fused in the abdomen and share the liver. The pictures were taken in Casa do Interior de Goiás that is kept by Organização das Voluntárias de Goiás (OVG), a place that hosts people for health care purposes.
