In December 2005, in London England, a work-in-progress exhibition of 20 images from the I'm not a look-alike! project took place at The Camera Club. The exhibit was organized by London photographer and artist Paul Anthony Harris and gave Londoners the opportunity for the first time to see some of the look-alikes images.
Entrance of The Camera Club on Bowden Street
Founded in 1885, The Camera Club is one of the oldest and most distinguished photographic societies in the country. Many notable figures in the history of photography have been members.
The club has its own London clubhouse which gives its members extended privileges. The main interest of the Club is to facilitate access for all to photography as an art form.

The prints, all 60 x 50 cm, were giving the English public a good idea of how the future expo of the project would look like. At the opening some people expressed doubts about the subjects being unrelated. A word was pronounced repeatedly during the evening to describe the work: " spooky ".
