Design Principles: Unity by Proximity

This photo displays unity in many ways, beginning with and focusing on, proximity. These electronic machines, used for any number of reasons, are captured very close to one another, meaning that their proximal location is right next to each other. These machines also have the same general shape, unifying them further when they are seen right next to one another such as in this picture. You can also see repetition in the overlapping lines in between each rectangle. This photo is very unified throughout the composition. Your eye is drawn right to the center of these objects and then to one specific side, most likely the right as it has a heavier feel because there is more going on. This photo is taken by Evgenia Arbugaeva, featured in American Photo on Campus, Spring 2015 edition.
