Symmetrical Portraits: Julian Wolkenstein




Photographer Julian Wolkenstein explores and exposes the proposed myth of an egocentric science that suggest people who have more symmetrical faces are considered more “attractive”.

“If you are made symmetrical, do you consider yourself more beautiful, less so, or is it just weird? Or is it you at all? Do you have a best side? What is to be said of left and right brain dominance?”

An accompanying website and continuing project titled “Echoism” is at The term Echoism relates to fascial symmetry in its physiognomical sense.

What I love about this project is it shows that each half looks like a close relative but is the same person.
