‘Genetic Portraits’ Show The Striking Similarities Between Family Members (66 Pics)


Ulric Collette’s work asks the essential questions about our own identity. Who are we? Where do we come from? How much do members of the same family resemble each other, and how do they differ? What is the role of genetics in the physical appearance of a person?

Ulric is a designer, graphic designer and photographer from Quebec City in Canada. He has created this unique project, where he explores his ideas by illustrating the genetic similarities between different members of the same family. From father to son (it was when photoshopping his own son’s image that the idea came to him) to siblings, grandparents and cousins, Ulric explores the power of genetics across many different branches of the family tree.

Scroll down below to see Ulric’s impressive work for yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments!
