We’re all said to have a doppelganger — someone who looks just like us. And that has never been apparent more so than in this photo series. One photographer tasked himself with taking portraits of people from all around the world who look not only related, but near-identical to each other.
Canadian photographer François Brunelle is the mastermind behind the project, titled “I’m not a look-alike!” Fascinated with the human face since 1968, he began taking portraits before launching this series. Over the past 16 years, he has shot almost 250 images of two total strangers posing together, sharing a very similar resemblance to each other.
Interestingly, he finds his subjects anywhere across the world, usually when traveling or sometimes through people putting themselves forward before uniting any two that look alike in order to capture them together. 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.
