Canada-based photographer and graphic designer Ulric Collette came up with probably the coolest family photo shoot idea ever.
While doing “an image a day” type of project Urlic tried to age his son in Photoshop an accidentally ended up creating his first genetic portrait (the first picture on our list). It was made by splicing together photographs of himself and his son.
Urlic calls his on-going series ‘Genetic Portraits’ and sees a lot of potential and other ideas related to genetics. Interestingly enough, the new combined faces of relatives look quite normal or at least are not far from it.
However, the best part is that you can try it yourself! In case your face doesn’t match with your family members, you might also consider experimenting with your neighbors.
