Symmetrical Photographs by Julian Wolkenstein
Whether this is an accepted truth in your household, it has almost become scientific fact that we are attracted to symmetry. Well, Julian Wolkenstein still believes that fact is a theory, and puts it to the test.

Have you ever stared into the mirror and gawked at the disproportions of particular spots on your face? Me too. We’ve all been there. Being beautiful or attractive is a desire that almost everyone wants, and we believe symmetry plays a huge role in our appeal to others. To test that theory, Julian Wolkenstein photographed subjects, split the snaps in half, then proceeded to mirror each side to create a new and symmetrical whole.

If you’re confused about which photograph is the original subject, the answer is neither. The photograph on the left side is of the left side of one subject’s face mirrored to make a new look, and the other is the subject’s right side similarly mirrored. It’s up to you to decide which side of your face is the best to be duplicated (don’t act like you haven’t thought about that before).

You can try out this effect by downloading Wolkenstein’s free app Echoism. If you never thought you saw deficiencies before, you’re about to find out which spots on your head are larger, wider, and more obtuse than you thought you knew. Just remember, it’s the personality that makes someone beautiful (when your eyes are closed.)
