In his brain-stimulating series “Genetic Portraits” Canadian photographer and designer Ulric Collette explores the facial similarities (and differences) between genetically-related people.

It’s a fascinating look at genetics and family ties from a perspective I’ve never seen before.

But there are so many more not-to-be-missed portraits over on Collette’s site. And you can see these in full size too.
