The Symmetry Project.

The Symmetry Project is a series of poster-sized collages.

A lifetime of travel has taught me that all people have the same universal needs and responsibilities.

To illustrate these global symmetries, I’ve created collages featuring photos of the same thing taken around the world.

The shape of the collage is determined by the universal need itself.

I’d be honored if you watched this short video introduction


All people have the same core needs and responsibilities

They only look different the farther we get from home

 

For instance, we all need to eat…

Or get from here to there.

Taksi.

Roads.

Or communicate.

Say Cheese

The Symmetry Project is about bringing our world together

It strives to show that no matter where home is, we’re not so different after-all.

That’s why I travel with small versions of each piece and cherish the smiles and connections they’ve led to…

The Scissor Lady got a big kick out of Say Cheese

In Burma, these brothers insisted I join them for a photo with Taksi.

Like the curious Turkish chef who delighted in seeing a Nicarguan kitchen.

Or fascinated South Korean locals asking me what I've taped to a phone booth.


The Symmetry Project Needs YOU!

Since the Symmetry Project seeks to unify our world, I would love all 6.974 billion people on Earth to see it.

That’s where you come in.

  6. [...] In our previous post we spoke to talented travel photographer and blogger Greg Goodman about his work. This is part 2 of that interview where we discuss Greg’s unique endeavor called The Symmetry Project. The Symmetry Project is a series of large-format collages; which explore the idea that all humans have the same universal needs and responsibilities. For example, we’ve all got to eat, sleep, take care of our families, work, get from here to there, etc.. What fascinates Greg is what these needs look like around the globe. Because, when you break it down, we are all the same. One world; one people. To help illustrate these global symmetries, Greg has created collages featuring photos of the same thing taken around the world. The shape of the collage is determined by the universal need itself. To learn more about The Symmetry Project watch the below video or you can also visit the project’s webpage here. [...]
