Photographer Blends Portraits of Fathers and Sons to Show Genetic Similarities

People often comment on how similar sons look to their fathers, but how similar are they, really? Photographer Craig Gibson decided to find out, and created a photo project called “Boys and Their Fathers.”

The project is a series of triptychs that contain: a portrait of the father, a portrait of the son, and a composite portrait that blends together the two base portraits.

Gibson says that the project is intended to “compare the facial characteristics” and “physical similarities” found in genetic relationships. In addition to facial features, the portraits also reveal interesting matches in expressions, postures, and moods.

Here are the other photographs found in the project:

You can find more of Gibson’s work over on his photography website.
