As part of an ongoing investigation on hereditary genes and the way they are received from parents and passed on to their offspring, I focus my attention on physical likeness in my Similarities series.
Unlike my previous work, this series of work is not based on image manipulation, making the project refreshingly simple. The exhibition consists of photos of real people on transparent sheets overlaid on top of one another – allowing the viewer to witness the resemblance passed through generations in a clear and easy way.

The process is extremely simple, yet the results are fascinating.

the Merged photo series: ‘Related II’ a mother and daughter from Scotland

This is new work based on a mother and daughter from Edinburgh, Scotland.

_You probably know Jeni, from the Mithing and  Rhizomes and Joy blogs as an intellectual artist and a past subject of my Portraits in the Dark series an collaborator in What Juan Saw When He Looked Into The Bin installation.

In this project, I studied Jeni and her mother Rosemary’s facial features and merged them to different degrees, suggesting them at different ages and creating different personalities based on the facial characteristics selected.

Similarities: Mother, Son and Daughter from Barcelona

A study on the facial likenesses passed on through generations, notwithstanding age and gender.

In continuation with the thinking process behind the Merged series, I investigate methods to show physical similarities and differences between faces in a simple and visual way. Here I study the facial features of a mother and her two children. I find it very interesting to see that their eyes are identical, noses are practically the same and so are their mouths and face shape.
