Mirror Images Reflect New Views

Looking Eastward on Reinhard

Symmetry implies a sense of balance.  The images in this post deal with symmetry found in spatial relationships and reflections or what Wikipedia calls patterned self-similarity.

These images present a unique view of German Village.  Reinhard Avenue forms the northern border of Schiller Park, while Deshler Avenue forms the southern border of the park.

The repetition of a hat in many of the images harkens back to days when everyone, male or female, wouldn’t be fully dressed without a stylish hat to bring a sense of symmetry to their ensemble.

Other various anomalies are incorporated into some of the images to encourage the viewer to explore the work in depth and experience a new understanding of visual contrasts.
