The Symmetry of Crystal photo series questions the idea of what beauty is and what it means to be beautiful. An abstract photographic project, it has been manipulated to create a surreal impact on the viewer. It challenges its audience to figure look for the core of each image rather than focusing on the distracting superimposed elements.

Photographed by Jan Masny, the Symmetry of Crystal photo series seems to be modeled after the Rorschach inkblots that encourage the idea of interpretations and different perspectives. With this in mind, one may have to embrace the disconcerting superimposed images in order to fully grasp the meaning behind each photo.

Aside from this psychological aspect, the Symmetry of Crystal series is stunning on its own, especially since it incorporates beautiful Swarovski crystals.
