Genetic Portraits by Ulric Collette
Canada-based photographer and graphic designer Ulric Collette came up with probably the coolest family photoshoot idea ever.
While doing “an image a day” type of project Urlic tried to age his son in Photoshop an accidentally ended up creating his first genetic portrait (the first of the cool photos on our list). It was made by creating a photo collage of himself and his son where the inherited traits are clearly visible.
Urlic calls his on-going series ‘Genetic Portraits’ and sees a lot of potential and other ideas related to genetic inheritance. Interestingly enough, the new photo manipulations of combined relatives’ faces look quite normal or at least are not far from it.
However, the best part is that you can try it yourself as it doesn’t require a vast knowledge of photo editing! In case your genetic traits don’t match with your family members, you might also consider experimenting with your neighbors.
