Finding Symmetry in the Most Unsymmetrical Forms

In Mirrors, photographer Traci Griffin finds symmetry in the most unsymmetrical forms. Focusing specifically on tree branches and hair, Griffin captures the many offshoots and divisions that naturally occur as long hair cascades down or a tree trunk expands and grows. The artist then divides the photograph in half and reflects it upon itself, giving the impression that each object is a perfectly aligned and mirrored reflection of itself.

Griffin explains her motivation for the project: “I learned that exact symmetry cannot be found in nature and allegedly the concept of symmetry in the universe has tormented famous philosophers for centuries. Perhaps this is why the images are slightly disconcerting. Personally, this project for me is simply about seeing something completely different in something so ordinary. It leaves you with a sense of wonderment and the possibility of a brand new synthesis."
