Have you ever noticed that dogs look a lot like their owners and sometimes even have similar personality? Swiss photographer Sebastian Magnani decided to bring this idea to life with his photo series “Underdogs”. He created 8 whimsical diptychs showing how similar humans are to their canine friends.

Shown with hair, clothes and accessories, the funny portraits of dogs and their owners reveal a striking resemblance. On his website, Magnani describes the idea behind his project:

“So where does this striking resemblance between dog and owner come from? Does the “underdog” really rank himself lower, even visually? It is undisputed that the canines not only stir emotions and interest, but also our inner most needs. Dogs are considered loyal, selfless, trustworthy, life saving, fun and proud companions in a world where these values are gradually disappearing.”
