It’s said that everyone has one…

 

Fascinated with the idea that two totally unrelated people can look like twins, photographer Francois Brunelle set out to take portraits of 200 doppelgangers. This beautiful black and white series began when he photographed a pair of friends who looked as though they were identical twins that had been separated at birth. Although most of his photos so far have been taken in North America, Brunelle is now taking his I’m Not a Look-Alike! project around the globe to create a book and international exhibit…

Read more of Brunelle’s story at Visual News.  Then see more doppelganger portraits (and follow Brunelle approaches his goal of photographing 200 pairs) on his website and Facebook.  And follow Sophie Robhemed, a journalist on the hunt for her doppelganger, as she seeks her double.

As we stare into the mirror, we might recall that it was on this date in 1954, in Oak Grove, Alabama, near Sylacauga, that a meteorite crashed down through the roof of Ann Hodges’ home and struck her– the first documented extraterrestrial object to have injured a human being in the U.S.  The grapefruit-sized fragment crashed through the roof of her frame house, bounced off a large wooden console radio, and hit Hodges as she napped on a couch. The 31-year-old woman was badly bruised on one side of her body but able to walk.
