“I’m not a look-a-like” Project Unites Doppelgangers Worldwide

By Lauren Kermelis on November 19th 2013

At one point or another we have all been told that we look like somebody else. Whether it be from a family member, a friend, or even just a friendly stranger who happens to fall into conversation with us, we can’t help but wonder if we might just happen to come across them some day.

Francois Brunelle has a passion for just that, and works hard at uniting these completely unrelated doppelgangers in his project to join together 200 “look-a-like” couples for his “I’m not a look-a-like” project. His love for a connection of photography to the human soul, is very apparent, and is seen in the photos below.

Brunelle formed the idea for this project when he photographed a pair of very close friends, who looked as though they had been separated at birth, from there his idea grew into what is now a global project as Francois is on a search for Doppelgangers around the world!

I find it great how many photographers are now taking the route of projects that incorporate your every-day human beings into the center of their project. It reminds us of the connection that we will forever share between each other, and humanity as a whole.

    Cool photos! A really neat doppelgänger photo would be comedic actor Will Farrell and Chad Smith, drummer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
