An artist whose medium is photography, François Brunelle travels the world looking for doubles. Born in Sherbrooke, Québec, he discovered the medium through the works of André de Dienes and Richard Avedon, two photographers who captured the world with exceptional authenticity.

François Brunelle launched his project Je ne suis pas un sosie ! (I’m Not a Look-Alike!) in 1999. His aim is to create an international exhibition and a book based on his black-and-white photographs. In fall 2015, he partnered with Nespresso to present his photographs in Spain.
