Split Family Faces. Cousins: Justine, 29, & Ulric, 29 How much do you and your family members really look alike? Quebec, Canada-based graphic designer and photographer Ulric Collette has created a shockingly cool project where he's exploring the genetic similarities between different members of the same family. By splitting their faces in half and then splicing them together, he creates interesting new people that are sometimes quite normal looking and other times far from it. He calls this series Genetic Portraits. (Did you notice that Ulric, the photographer, is one-half of some of these pairings? For instance, see first and last.) Update 1: We got in touch with Ulric to ask him a few questions about this really intriguing series (that just happened to go viral).

Update 2: What happened after Split Family Faces went viral? Mother/Daughter: Francine, 56 & Catherine, 23 Sisters: Catherine, 23 & Veronica, 29 Daughter/Mother: Veronica, 29 & Francine, 56 Sister/Brother: Karine, Dany & XX years, 25 years. Olympic National Park: One of the wildest places left in the USA [36 PICS] Maple Glade Trail.

Photo #5 by KevinM Olympic National Park trees and roots in Hoh Rain Forest. Some of the trees in this forest are “old growth forest” meaning they are over 200 years old and some much higher than 30 stories tall and wider than two parking spaces! Photo #8 by Goldom Olympic National Park has a 73-mile long wilderness coast that is a rare treasure in a country where much of the coastline is prime real estate. Maple leaves and sword fern cover the ground.
