Family resemblance is a curious thing. When two immediate family members look so much alike, it can be jarring. North Carolina bred, Arizona based photographer Bobby Neel Adams capitalizes on this phenomenon of startling likeness in his stellar FamilyTree series. Adams captures portraits of two immediate family members (usually mother/daughter and father/son pairings) dressed and posed similarly. Rather than a tidy side-by-side composition, Adams tears them down the middle, then places two halves together. This technique works so well, both conceptual and aesthetically. Well done.

One of television’s most beloved cartoon moms is the subject of a fantastic photograph by Russian photographer Alexander Khokhlov, who teamed up with makeup artist Veronica Ershova and stylist Mikhail Kravchenko to transform model Kate Moukhina into a real-life Marge Simpson. Immortalizing Marge and her signature blue bouffant was no easy feat. Kravchenko even used real chrysanthemums painted blue and special wire frame to bring her hair to towering heights. Another notable pop culture-centric portrait series by team Khokhlov/Ershova is “Angry Beards” based on the Angry Birds phenomenon. Can’t wait to see what they come up with next!
