In his latest project entitled “I’m Not a Look-Alike!”, Canadian photographer, Francois Brunelle, takes striking portraits of people who are are not related by blood but look amazingly similar.

Brunelle says he has studied the human face since he started taking photographs in 1968 at age 18.

These portraits feature a range of people from North America and Europe placed next to each other. Brunelle claims that the portraits allow him to explore the intimate relationship between his subjects as they react to their similarity in appearance.

Though Brunelle’s process is a bit unclear he says, “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 will continue to look for subjects and invites people to contact him until he finished the project next year. See more details at brunelle.com
