Perfect Lines. 25 Images of Symmetry to Inspire You

By EyeEm Team - 3 min read

Check out the stunning highlights from our recent photo mission

When the Greek philosophers paused to consider what made something beautiful, it was Plato who suggested it was a result of harmony and symmetry. Now, after more than 2,000 years, scientists have tested Plato’s theory and concluded that he was right: as humans, we are attracted to symmetry.

Bearing that in mind, we weren’t surprised to see some incredibly beautiful images in our recent photo mission, Symmetrical. Check out some of the highlights below for inspiration – why not try capturing a perfectly symmetrical shot yourself?
