The Unbearable "Likeness" of Being

I cannot for the life of me get over how perfectly appropriate these celebrity then and now collages by George Chamoun are. The project is officially named Iconatomy, derived from the words, "icon" and "anatomy." The collages involve combining images of two different actors, one classic, the other being his or her contemporary counterpart. The two individual pictures in each collage have not been altered to fit each other, which meant a lot of photo research on the artist's part to get it just right (and this is where we all bow down to Mr. Chamoun). Details on who is featured in which collage at the end of the post (though I'm sure you're quite familiar).

(top to bottom: George Clooney and Cary Grant / Angelina Jolie and Elizabeth Taylor / Natalie Portman and Audrey Hepburn / Robert Pattinson and James Dean / Scarlett Johansson and Marilyn Monroe)
