Celebrity Impersonators & Their Asian Look-A-Likes

What if Dolly Parton was Asian? For his series All Look Same, photographer Howard Cao took a trip to Las Vegas to shoot portraits of uncanny celebrity impersonators and then transformed their race using some fancy editing from Sugar Digital. The project explores how cultural identity influences our notions of celebrity. So, what difference does it make and does it make any difference at all? Would Willie Nelson be any less “country,” any less famous, any less Willie Nelson? Spotted in the June issue of PDN Magazine for the 2012 PDN Photo Annual, see some famous doppelgängers in our gallery.
