Portraits of Unrelated Look-Alikes by François Brunelle
Ever had people say that you reminded them of someone else? Well, sometimes it may be not just a cheesy pick up line: Canadian photographer François Brunelle proves this in this twin photo series “I’m not a look-alike!”, where his almost identical models are not even related. The artist has been studying the human face since 1968, when he first started of as a photographer at the age of 18. He is now set to make 200 photos of the look-alike couples and publish them as a portrait book.
François finds his models while traveling and then brings two complete strangers together for a photo shoot. “I found my first subjects simply through people I knew who looked alike. Then as the media covered my project, more people came forward to take part,” he adds.
Couples of different ages and even sexes pose as if for their family portraits, and one would hardly think they could be coming from completely different parts of the globe. Curious world we live in!
