Strangers Meet Their Doppelgangers in These Beautiful Portraits

Advertisement

We’ve all had those moments; we’re somewhere in public and we see a person who looks EXACTLY like someone we know. The spitting image of someone familiar to us – they give us pause, and we consider approaching them, maybe even hugging them…until we realize it’s not who we thought it was.

Whew, that was close! I almost made a fool out of myself (again).

Canadian photographer Francois Brunelle has been taking photos for almost 50 years. For his latest project, he brought together complete strangers who just happen to look exactly alike so he could photograph them. Brunelle says, “I found my first subjects simply through people I knew who looked alike. Then as the media covered my project, more people came forward to take part.”

The resemblance between his various subjects is uncanny. Take a look at the 10 photos below to see for yourself.
