Everybody DOES have a twin: Photographer creates amazing portraits of STRANGERS who look the double of each other

By LOUISE BOYLE

The same...but different: Nathaniel (who did not give his last name) and Edward Toledo, pictured in Montreal in 2003, are remarkably similar but not twins

At first glance, it's an elegant set of portraits of twins - but look more closely and the secret is revealed.
None of the individuals captured by photographer Francois Brunelle are related by blood, their faces just have strikingly similar characteristics.
Mr Brunelle, who lives in Québec, has studied the human face since he started out as a photographer at the age of 18 in 1968.

Mirror image: Stéphane Morin (left) and Claude-Simon Langlois are unrelated look-alikes. Mr Morin, is Canadian-born and Mr Langlois, is American-born

The collection, entitled I'm not a look-alike!, features a range of individuals from North American and European backgrounds who are not related, side by side.
According to the photographer, the portraits allow him to explore the intimate relationship between subjects and how they approach their remarkably similar appearances.

Mr Brunelle told MailOnline: '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 photographer continues to look for subjects and is inviting people to come forward until he finishes the project next year. More details can be found at brunelle.com.
