Gilles Alonso is a talented 43-year-old photographer based in Lyon, France. Gilles specializes in architecture and interior photography. For his recent project “Symétrie du Spectacle” (“Symmetry Show”), Alonso takes shots of theater stages empty of any crowds with perfect symmetry, putting the emphasis on the spectacular architecture of these rooms. Photographer visited about 30 performing arts halls across France and photographed the theaters from center stage.
I have long wanted to undertake a series on the theme of symmetry. Theaters were a perfect subject for this theme, as their designs are guided by similar constraints. The architects and designers all think about things like sound propagation, the ability to see the stage, and quick access to exits.
