Mirror, Mirror

The ideal of beauty in today's society is a topic that has been hotly discussed on many occasions. The fact remains that everyone likes to be pretty. And common sense tells us that the most attractive face is perfectly symmetrical. But what happens when you force perfect symmetry to a person's face? Will they be prettier, or is the ideal of perfect beauty just smoke and mirrors?

Mirror, Mirror is an exploration of the human face. Frontal portraits were taken and the halves of the face were mirrored in post-production, so the result is two perfectly symmetrical faces. One mirrored left half and one mirrored right half.
