Creepy Kids and Parents Photoshoot: ‘Face Replace’ Studio Portraits

You know those ‘face replace’ pics that sometimes crop up on sites like Reddit? Where everyone’s faces are swapped out for others and that create a kind of creepypasta effect that makes you want to walk away from your computer and like, read a book for a few minutes or something?

It was probably only a matter of time until someone created some really killer professional face replace images, like this German photographer. Using some studio shots of parents and their toddlers, Paul Ripke did some kick ass face replace shots that are at once compelling and creepy as all get out.

What do you think? Excellent work, or the studio equivalent of lolcats?
