Photographer finds the equations hiding in her pictures

Nikki Graziano was a photography and math student at Rochester Institute of Technology, and she found the perfect way to combine her passions. Graziano examines the shapes that appear in her photographs and overlays the mathematical functions that best describe them.

For her "Found Functions" series, Graziano comes up with functions to describe the ordinary shapes in her photographs, tweaking them until the function and photo match perfectly. I wonder, if you did this to enough photographs, would you eventually come up with a grand unifying theory of photography?
