here are a few images from their gallery.In 2016, Lara and Mara Bawar caught the attention of Swiss photographer Vinicius Terranova. Their extremely pale skin prompted Vinicius Terranova to embark on a project which he called Flores Raras which in English translates to “rare flowers.”
The twins were born in 2005 in the city of São Paulo, Brazil. Their parents were originally from Guinea-Bissau in West Africa. Both girls have albinism, a medical condition that causes skin and hair to lack pigmentation.
It is this unique physical feature that struck Terranova and served as his inspiration for the photo shoot. Speaking about the art project, he said:
My art represents the beauty in diversity and both the literal and symbolic extensions of empowerment.
Since the release of Terranova’s project, the twins have gotten very popular and attracted even more attention from big brands. Nike, Insanis, and Bazaar Kids are but a few of the major players that the twins have modeled for.
As for the girls, they are pretty comfortable with their unique features and have no problem with the attention they get.
We feel albinism is pretty, we love our hair, eye colour and skin tone. – Lara
Twin sister Mara also added, “growing up like this was amazing, we love being different and are happy with our unique beauty.”
The twins’ elder sister, 15-year-old Shiela was also photographed by Terranova for his showcase. Although she does not have albinism, she is also stunning with her rich brown skin and striking features.

In less than two years, the young models have amassed a following on Instagram exceeding 147,000.
