Symmetrical Faces: A Scientific Concept Of Beauty?

Posted by Stacey on: 24th Aug 2013

Echoism by Julian Wolkenstein

One of our touring exhibitions is entitled 200 Faces and the theme explores the ever-present, dynamic and enthralling genre of portrait photography and features 200 portrait photographs by 191 photographers from all over the world and at all stages in their careers.

Here at TPA we find portrait photography to be an intriguing medium and we are always fascinated by the sheer variety of projects that people are embarking on involving portrait photography. One such project is called Echoism and is the work of artist Julian Wolkenstein in which he explores the notion of whether or not having a more symmetrical face makes us more attractive to others. He completed a series of photographic portraits in 2010, for which the subjects were specifically cast on the grounds of their individual facial features. They were photographed front to camera and in the same position and were asked not to express emotions or character.

It's been over a week since the terrible events at the Boston marathon killed three people and left over 180 injured. Whilst the world tries to come to terms with yet more acts of mindless terrorism, debates have been raging in the photography world as to how we cover such tragic events and report them back to the global audience that looks on. Questions have been raised as to the ethics of disaster photography in the age of social media and there is an insightful article that explores this issue over on Flavorwire that we thought you might find an interesting read. Many people have also raised the question of what happens when the line blurs between sports photography and photojournalism? Should photographers stop and help in these situations or should they keep shooting? We'll let you make the decision once you've read the article in full in The Guardian. Plenty to think about in this week's Friday Link Love!
