What is your best angle? When we pay close attention to aesthetic standards, we lose focus. After all, idealized beauty is quite different from what we are and can be. What you do not know is that imperfection is our charm.

To question current aesthetic standards, photographer Alex John Beck did an experiment called Both Sides Of. First, he took pictures of ordinary people. Then, with a computer graphics program, she “mirrored” one side of each model's face. The end result, by comparing the original faces (left) with those made perfectly symmetrical faces, reveals subtle differences. For better or for worse? See the following photos and make your choice.
