The Mugshot Doppelganger photo series may seem very familiar even though they are comprised of vintage mugshots. That is because the images have been doctored to cleverly depict modern celebrity faces in the old school captures. Using actual mugshot portraits of each celebrity, the images are pretty flawless.

Designed by Michael Jason Enriquez, an advertising student at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, the Mugshot Doppelganger photo series is quite eerie, in fact. Nevertheless, the mastermind behind the Tumblr project mentions that it offers a way of "linking us to the past."

The Mugshot Doppelganger photo series is comprised of such infamous celebrities as Lindsay Lohan, Mel Gibson, Robert Downey Jr., Nicole Richie, Charlie Sheen and Snooki. Stats for Vintage Celeb Mugshots Trending: Older & Warm
