One of the coolest set of photos ever.

You can’t escape your genes.  Here’s an awesome, cool and ongoing project of Canada-based graphic designer and photographer Ulric Collette. When he was trying to age his son, he came up with his first “genetic portrait” by combing his photo and his son’s face in one picture. (The first two pictures on our list, taken when his son was aged 7 and 9, respectively.) See the striking resemblance? It will make you in awe realizing the wonders of genetics in the family. Looking at these photos made me want to try it with pictures from our family. You can also try it yourself!
