We are all more or less asymmetric; what would happen if our faces were symmetrical? In this case, Julian Wolkenstein presents a series of photographic portraits in which 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. The process is a face-to-camera portrait, the image is split into a left and a right section, and then one side is horizontally flipped. These images are recombined to create two separate and symmetrical identities of the subject. Judge yourselves…however, it’s asymmetry that makes us special… or not?
