There is an old saying that somewhere in the world, there is a double for everyone. There are a few people who share my name, even though it is an unusual one. But I have always found the idea of a physical double very intriguing.
So how do I find my double?
Obviously, my double is not a native of Japan or China. I doubt that my double would have been born in Egypt or India. By eliminating about 75% of the world’s population as a possible source of my double, what are the chances that such a person really exists? Maybe my double lived generations ago, or is yet to be born. How would I ever know?
There is a photographer who has been collecting photos of strangers who look like twins. Francois Brunelle Has produced a project in which he photographs people who look remarkably alike. He has shown in both Canada and London.
Some of the photos are here, as well.
I urge you to follow the links. The people in the photos are look-alikes in the sense of being twins. I cannot imagine the feeling to see another person, a stranger, who looks exactly like me.
Maybe one of the subjects in the photos looks like you. If you know of a physical double of yours (other than a twin), maybe you should be part of the project.
And if you know what I look like-only a few bloggers do–and you see my double, let me know!!
