Ulric Collette's Genetic Portraits



Here's an interesting project. Quebecois artist Ulric Collette (shown above, with his cousin Justine) explores the facial similarity of relatives by mashing their faces together into one portrait. The Genetic Portraits series was featured in My Modern Met, who snagged an interview with Collette. There are a lot of great results--some look like a normal person (when the relatives are close in appearance) and some can be kind of crazy. Link -via Laughing Squid

I came across this too and loved it as well. I think for me, it was the fact that two people who are completely different and may have nothing in common do have something that ties them together, their genes. I explored this further in my post here:
