Splicing Family Genetics Together with a Camera

Once again I find myself impressed and vexed all at the same time. When am I going to produce a creative body of work like Croix Gagnon and Frank Schott's "12:31" or something as intriguing as Ulric Collette's "Genetic Portraits" where he virtually, splices family members together?

The genetic similarities between two family members results in a portrait that almost looks like a normal person, especially where ages are similar.

Cousins: Justine, 29, & Ulric, 29

Twins: Laurence & Christine, 20

Father/Son: Laval, 56 & Vincent, 29

Mother/Daughter: Francine, 56 & Catherine, 23

Brothers, Christopher, 30 & Ulric, 29

Sister/Brother: Karine, Dany & XX years, 25 years

Sisters: Catherine, 23 & Veronica, 29

Brothers, Matthew, 25 & Ulric, 29

Father/Son: Denis, 53 & William, 28

Just an FYI... the  Ulric Collette’s “Genetic Portraits” link on the general post comes up with an "Oops"

As for the post itself, reminds me of the classic RUSH song Mystic Rhythms.
