Doppelgangers: Unrelated Strangers Who Look Like Twins
This is a series of portraits by photographer Francois Brunelle entitled 'I'm Not A Lookalike'. They all feature two unrelated strangers who look like twins. Some of them are less convincing than others, but none are less convincing than the actual twins I went to high school with. They were a girl and boy -- how's that even happen?! "You're an idiot." They said the same thing when I asked! Really hurt my feelings. Then we made a baking soda and vinegar volcano in chemistry class and I forgot all about it.
The 62-year-old Montreal-based photographer has spent the last 12 years scouring the world for complete strangers who look alarmingly similar, according to Rex USA.
"I was inspired by 2 things," Brunelle told Rex USA. "First I used to see look-alikes all over since a very long time. Second, my own likeness with TV character Mr Bean."
Fun fact: I actually met my doppelganger at a reggae concert in college. I couldn't believe it, he literally looked exactly like me. And as I stood there staring at him, completely dumbfounded, I thought to myself, "What a f***ing monster, as soon as I can afford it I'm getting some face work done."
Keep going for a bunch more.
Thanks to lilco, who agrees it's important to know a person in town who looks similar enough like you to blame your crime-spree on.
