This is a collection of portraits of people who look alike but aren't related at all. Canadian photographer, François Brunelle, is fascinated with the human face and the question of whether everyone has a doppelganger somewhere on Earth that looks exactly like them. For years now, he has been working on a project called I’m Not a Look-Alike!, which features portraits of people who look like identical twins but aren’t actually related at all. Really cool!

Cool art project: "The subject is shot face-to-camera portrait, with the image then split into a left and a right section, then one side is horizontally flipped. These images are recombined to create two separate and symmetrical identities of the subject.    "There is a myth, some say a science, suggesting people who have more symmetrical faces are considered more 'attractive.' If you are made symmetrical, do you consider yourself more beautiful, less so, or is it just weird?"
