Split Portraits

Truly remarkable work from photographer and graphic designer Ulric Collette, with these stunning photographic comparisons of family members, literally, side by side.


Brothers

Cousins

Father and son

Mother and daughter

Brother and sister

Twin sisters

This final twin image is particularly fascinating.

People often say how much you may or may not look particularly like another family member, picking up on traits or features, but this is a vivid reminder on just how strong a role genetics plays in visual identity.

All the rest from this project can be seen on her Ulric’s website under Portrait Génétiques.
