We often have a strong preference for symmetrical forms and structures both in nature and in our built environment. We find symmetrical faces, bodies, objects and scenes beautiful, and many of our artefacts are designed to be symmetrical as well. Some of our likes and dislikes have biological roots, but much of our attitude towards symmetry and asymmetry is shaped along the lines of our culturally influenced aesthetic preferences and customs. As much as we are drawn to symmetrical structures, we also appreciate or even expect asymmetry in many contexts in visual communication in general, and in photography in particular. Asymmetry may be central to the expressive content of many photographs. Symmetrical or asymmetrical compositions are often creative choices that significantly contribute to the appreciation of the meaning of photographic images.

This PH21 Gallery exhibition is presented in Rome, Italy, in collaboration with KromArt Gallery and Centro Sperimentale di Fotografia Adams, a renowned Italian centre for photography.
