Do not be fooled - they are not the same.

Photographer Martin Schoeller shot a series of photos of people who look the same on the surface yet in close-ups reveal that they are indeed different people.

Mr. Schoeller is known for his intimate style of portraits with neutral expressions in front of unadorned backgrounds.
