BALANCE by EDI CHEN

BALANCE

 

Jan 7, 2016 – Jan6, 2017

In late 2015 my fascination with symmetrical subjects began and I decided to embark on my year-long urban symmetry photography project called Balance. I took the first picture for this project on January 7, 2016, and continued daily through January 6, 2017. During this time I photographed 366 symmetrical subjects in and around New York City completing my project. I focused on diverse structures and perspectives of architecture as well as different views of the city enhanced by mood, harmony, proportion, and balance. Each day I traversed the city going from neighborhood to neighborhood and all five boroughs in search of symmetrical beauty. On these daily shoots, I had to be prepared for weather, lighting or any other random occurrence which either hindered or helped my work.

Albert Einstein said, “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is.”
