Moscow-based photographer Sasha Levin finds beauty in symmetrical architecture. His Instagram account features fantastic structures that are characterized by strong, defining lines.

The figures in the photos are framed by the symmetrical shapes around them, formed by arches, beams and striking facades. The result? The person in the photo is often encompassed by a visual filter, offering even more charisma to each shot. Levin explains, "My eyes always spot people in the background. It's allowed me to show dynamic life in a static frame." Indeed, each photo has a sense of movement to it.

The human eye is drawn to symmetry; this fact is made all the more true by Levin's stunning photographs. Forget a glance -- you won't be able to keep yourself from staring at these hypnotic images.
