Portraits of Unrelated Doppelgangers Who Have Found Their Match

Francois Brunelle 1

Fascinated with the idea that two totally unrelated people can look like twins, photographer Francois Brunelle set out to take portraits of 200 doppelgangers. This beautiful black and white series began when he photographed a pair of friends who looked as though they were identical twins that had been separated at birth. Although most of his photos so far have been taken in North America, Brunelle is now taking his I’m Not a Look-Alike! project around the globe to create a book and international exhibit. He has already been looking for look-alikes in Australia!

On his website, Brunelle explains:

The project is about looking like other people. The fact that two persons, totally unrelated to each other, sometimes born in different countries, share the same physical appearance is really the essence of the project.

Check out more doppelganger portraits and stay tuned as Brunelle approaches his goal of photographing 200 pairs on his website and Facebook. If Sophie Robhemed, the journalist on the hunt for her doppelganger, has met her match, she should reach out to Francois Brunelle for a photo shoot.

    This was so fantastic! I wish I knew about it then! I live in KCMO and have been approached many of times asking if I was this other lady and they always seemed puzzled when I’d tell them no! lol I know I have a twin, would have loved to participate to find her!

    They only look alike superficially: most of them hardly resemble each other in their features. Dress a man as Elvis and he’ll superficially resemble Elvis.

    I guess the makers of this study are not too good with faces. I bet they are, for example, often convinced that transgender women are biologically female. Or that Superman’s Clark Kent disguise is perfectly plausible. Or when their dad dressed up for X-mas, that he really was Santa Claus! Life must be much more fun for these folks.
