Symmetrical Portraits by Julian Wolkenstein
If you’re one of those who have their good side for the photos, this means that the concept of facial asymmetry is not unknown to you. Photographer Julian Wolkenstein took this idea as an inspiration for his photo series, where he matched the same sides of the person’s face together. By applying this method, he would get two perfectly symmetrical pictures of the same model. Surprisingly, the two photos would turn out considerably different!
Wolkenstein photographed ordinary people whose faces seemed interesting to him, asking his models to show no character or emotions. The portrait series was completed in 2010, and was part of Wolkenstein’s study on facial features, facial proportions and facial symmetry.
One can only imagine how bizarre it is to see your face deconstructed like this; on the other hand, this definitely helps you pick your better side!
