Canadian photographer François Brunelle is fascinated with the human face and the question of whether everyone has a doppelganger somewhere on Earth that looks exactly like them. For years now, he has been working on a project called I’m Not a Look-Alike!, which features portraits of people who look like identical twins but aren’t actually related at all. Brunelle looks for subjects whose faces are so similar that their close friends might have trouble telling them apart.

Once he’s in the studio with the look-alikes (which is often the first time the two subjects meet), Brunelle shoots simple black-and-white studio portraits of them in order to draw attention to the faces (rather than things like clothing and hair color).

Brunelle himself is a look-alike: he is regularly told that he looks just like actor Rowan Atkinson, who’s famous for playing the character Mr. Bean.
