Finally see which side of you is the better side. Echoism takes the left and right side of your face and puts them both together. It's an experiment from the artist Julian Wolkenstein.

Everyone who has done it has their photo added to this virtual galleries, which i am sure the artist will use for something.

The virtual gallery

Here's what the artist says...

There is a myth, some say a science, suggesting people who have more symmetrical faces are considered more “attractive “.

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?

This is a series of photographic portraits completed in 2010. 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.

This initial study focusing on facial symmetry, is part of a larger piece revolving around facial features, facial proportions and facial symmetry.

An accompanying website and continuing project titled "Echoism" is at

The term Echoism relates to fascial symmetry in its physiognomical sense.
