Genetic Portraits: Ulric Collette Creates AMAZING Split Family Faces (Photos)

Cousins: Justine, 29, & Ulric, 29

Genetics are a funny thing. You may not act or talk like your mom, dad, sister or brother, but like it or not, you probably look like them. Be it your eyes, your mouth, your facial structure or the hue of your hair, you acquired the physical elements that make you look the way you do from your family.

Exploring the similarities that genetics brings to the table is the photographic series by the Quebec, Canada-based graphic designer and photographer Ulric Collette. His inspiration? His son. He said in a recent interview that, “my first genetic-related image was this one of me and my son (immediately below) who looked very much like me when I was a kid.” And from there, the series was born.
