Genetic Portraits Are Unsettling, Beautiful

The work of artist Ulric Collette seeks to examine the connections between family members in a unique, and sometimes unsettling way.

From My Modern Met:

Quebec, Canada-based graphic designer and photographer Ulric Collette has created a shockingly cool project where he's exploring the genetic similarities between different members of the same family. By splitting their faces in half and then melding them together, he creates interesting new people that are sometimes quite normal looking and other times far from it. He calls this series Genetic Portraits.
