PHOTOGRAPHY: Both Sides Of by Alex John Beck

Symmetrical faces are said to be a benchmark for true beauty (this especially rings true in the fashion industry), but this startling project shows they actually might not be what everyone wants.

British-born, New York-based photographer Alex John Beck’s series ‘Both Sides Of’ offers two sets of symmetrical faces.

One image takes the left half of the subject’s face and mirrors it into the beauty shot of a seemingly whole face, while the adjacent portrait offers a similarly symmetrical rendition of the right side of the face.

It reveals how unsymmetrical faces really are and how different one would look, were they to be completely equal on both sides.
