A man with two faces

“Your photo of a “Man with Two Faces” is actually a photograph of sideshow performer Bill Durks. He does not have “2” faces, Bill was born with a condition known as frontonasal dysplasia, a birth defect that occurs when the two halves of an embryo’s face fail to come together completely. He had a deeply cleft lip and palate and a bifid, or double, nose – each half having only one nostril. What you’re seeing in the photo as a third eye in the center of his face was painted on by Bill himself, to fool excitable carnival-goers.” – Punkinatrix
