This initial study focusing on facial symmetry, is part of a larger piece revolving around facial features, facial proportions and facial symmetry.
The term Echoism relates to fascial symmetry in its physiognomical sense.
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? Try your Echoism HERE
An accompanying website / iphone app and continuing project titled “Echoism” is at echoism.org
There is a myth, some say a science, suggesting people who have more symmetrical faces are considered more “ attractive “. Julian Wolkenstein completed in 2010 a series of photographic portraits entitled “Echoism”. 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.
