OK, this is equal parts unsettling and equal parts brilliant. French photographer Ulric Collette has taken the familial resemblance concept into the latest creative endeavor, the Genetic Portraits series. The genetic predisposition that leads to visual similarities between family members was the photographer’s foundation for creating the following photo manipulations: combining two halves of family members — limited to father and son, mother and daughter, siblings and cousins — then conflating them make for an odd but amusing series. In essence, visually mating those who should never mate. Check out more from Collete’s Genetic Portraits series here.
