If I wasn’t already unnaturally fascinated by family resemblances, Ulric Collette’s photographs would have sealed the deal.
Collette’s collection of split-screen photos shows just how deep family roots run.
The results are striking. Some photos of siblings almost appear to be the same person. The photos of parents and children often seem to be the same person through the years rather than different generations.
An adoptee, I’ve spent a lifetime wondering who I look like and an equal amount of time marveling over others’ shared features and gestures. Newly reunited with my first mother and learning about my extended first family, I’m finding shared looks and expressions along the way.
I learned of Collette’s work in this Fast Company story, and have been back to the photo collection again and again.
I’m wowed each and every time (and now in search of a way to do this for me and everyone I know!).
