Francois Brunelle – Lookalike Project


Canadian photographer Francois Brunelle shoots photos of two people who’re not related, but look alike. As you can see from the examples above, these strangers could easily pass off as siblings. In fact, if you just showed me the pictures, you’d probably have to work hard in convincing me that they’re not indeed twins. There is very minimal photo-editing (only for distractions like dusts etc).

The photographer’s site, and more pictures here.

    Hi Everyone! I’ve been told many times over the years that I look like Drew Barrymore. I’ve even been a little taken aback when I’ve seen certain shots of her in magazines (mostly profiles) that look like a photo of me. Does anyone else out there aparently look a little like her?

    My mum had 3 of her friends tell her that they saw her at some place where she had never been…then a complete stranger in a shop said to her ” i haven’t seen you at such and such place anymore” mum explained to her that she had never been there and the woman couldn’t believe it saying she looked exactly like her! And the weird thing is that both my mum and this double of hers are both professional Singers, my mum still has never seen her.

    And heres another interesting story….a family friend of ours told us that once when his mother was away in another part of the country she called him on the phone wanting to know why he had ignored her….apparently a man had walked right past his mother looked at her and kept on walking….our friend was not even in that part of the country at that time!

    Many years ago I walked into a store and the staff greeted me as if they knew me. At first I thought they were just way friendly,but then as more staff passed by, they kept saying, “Hi, how are you?”. Finally,one of them said,”you’re Larry’s brother,right?” I replied,who’s Larry?” It turns out Larry was the manager and they all thought I was his brother. He also wasn’t in the store that day. I went back on another occasion and this time one of the staff ran to the back to call Larry. Larry came out and they said,”THIS is the guy we told you about!” Actually I could see a strong resemblance even between Larry and me,which he saw as well. I never did meet Larry’s brother but my real sister and brother got a kick out of teasing me for years after, that I was actually Larry’s brother.
