Design Principles: Balance

This photo is an excellent example of balance to me. The first thing that i notice is the weight of the sides is relatively similar. The red circles in the background are evenly weighted on both sides, with the man being directly in the middle of the image.This artwork is unified in relation to the image as a whole as it gives you a sense of calm when being viewed. In this instance as well, I notice the negative space both created by the background shapes and even the outline of the man. This is unique because that too, is balanced, making this the perfect example. This photo is taken by Judith Golden and was published in her photographical works book, "Cycles, a Decade of Photographs".
