Do we find symmetrical faces more attractive?
This is a series of photographic portraits completed in 2010. The subjects were specifically cast for their individual facial features. They were photographed front to camera and in the same position. They were asked not to express emotions or character.
Then left and right sides are mirrored to produce the portraits shown.
It's the juxtaposition of the two portraits that's interesting: either on their own would be unremarkable. And I'm not sure it tells us anything about symmetry and our perception of beauty - especially as we're not shown the original portraits.
Loads more at the Echoism website, where people are encouraged to send in their own pictures, and it can all get a bit silly: like the house of mirrors at a funfair, but with a fancy name.
