A look at why we are interested in what we see in art. Are we born with aesthetic preferences that are shaped by cultural influences? Is our natural attraction to Beauty another weapon in our arsenal of species' survival? This book examines many so-called rules of composition in the visual arts to find natural reasons for their existence. It is designed to aide the visual artist and those who appreciate their work by bringing attention to subtle cues of attraction cultivated by our ancient and immediate ancestors. It calls upon recent work in neuroaesthetics and other scientific disciplines to back up its speculative claims, and asks the reader to contribute opinions of their own on the books' website at naturallycomposed.com. There are many examples of photos in the book, and the reader is again asked to insert their own examples to enforce or refute the claims.
