Photography Project Takes "You Look Just Like Your Mother" to a New Level

Each of Ulric Collette's portraits is composed of two relatives' faces mashed together to show how strong family resemblances are

Think you don’t look like anyone in your family? French-Canadian photographer Ulric Collette might just be able to prove you wrong. Collette created mashups in which he takes photographs of two family members, edits half of each face and creates one seamless portrait. He calls it the “Genetic Portraits” series. 

Turns out gender differences and age gaps don't matter. Try as we might sometimes to keep them at bay, but we all have more in common with your relatives than we think.
