Exploring Symmetry in Mirrored Imagery

mirrors-traci-griffin-2

Photographer Traci Griffin devoted nearly four years to completing her photography series entitled “Mirrors”. The concept behind the series, is the baffling issue of symmetry, and how symmetry does not exist in nature. For her project, Traci photographed trees in various locations, and then mirrored the branches. The result is a stunning, yet eerie compilation of photographs.

On first glance, the hovering branches appear to be bizarre formations and/or life forms. Some viewers felt that the images reminded them of the Rorschach inkblot tests. For the artist, it was about creating images of ordinary objects and turning them into something completely different in the hopes that it would produce wonderment in her viewers.
