Facial Symmetry: You Look Just Like ____

It’s fascinating to compare similar features and facial expressions shared by family members. Photographer Ulric Collette takes this concept and runs with it. He splices images of two relatives together, somehow managing enough symmetry to make comparisons eerily compelling. Collette’s genetic portraits series has been shortlisted in the advertising awards show, the Cannes Lion. Check out his gallery of images.
