Photographer Takes “You Look Just Like Your (Family Member)” To the Next Level

Its a common phrase that we have all said and heard, "You're a spitting image of your Father" or "You look just like your Mother!" amongst other alternatives. Its a phrase that photographer Ulric Collette knows too well. This photography project by Ulric displays his research of the genetic similarities between members of the same family in quite an unsual yet simple way. 

Ulric has captured the faces of immediate relations (ie – mother & daughter, sisters, twins, father & son) and has stitched them together to create one. The results are quite surreal as you start to notice the vast amount of similarities between the subjects. Take a look below.
