Ulric Collette: Artist’s Crazy But Cool Family Franken-Photos
Have you ever been told you are starting to look like your Mother/Father by someone? well artist Ulric Collette stumbled onto something pretty cool here. in 2008 in a attempt to try aging a photo of his son, he morphed the photo of his younger counterpart and himself into these so called “franken-photos” and the rest is history. Looking at the pictures he creates by merging portraits of two close relatives, you can see how their genetic overlap creates striking visual echoes across decades and genders. the result is a fascinating mash-up of two faces that share much of the same DNA. Ulric Collette’s “Genetic Portrait” series will be on display from October 2 to October 28 at the Centaur Theater’s Seagram Art Gallery in Montreal.
