It started by accident. Noticing that his breakfast was perfectly symmetrical to the one he prepared for his boyfriend, Michael Zee snapped a photo and posted it to Instagram. Zee has been posting daily to his Symmetry Breakfast series for more than a year, and now has 400,000 followers. Zee told The Guardian, “People wonder if I’m crazy or obsessive but it is a declaration of love, really. I’m dedicated — both to breakfast and to Mark.”
The London-based museum educator studied photography for five years. Not only does Zee wake up very early in the morning to prepare, he sometimes begins the night before.
