Romanian photographer Andrei Mogan has a thing for eyes. His fantastic series of macro shots, titled Look Into My Eyes, is quite beautiful, uncovering intricacies that otherwise go unnoticed. Mogan’s work is reminiscent of Your Beautiful Eyes series by Armenian photographer Suren Manvelyan. Andrei takes it a step further, however, by also photographing his subjects clutching prints of their eyes. We love this approach, it gives some context to the subject matter, and makes these shots that much more striking.

It’s interesting how some of the most common things can seem obscure with a different point of view. This is certainly the case with Armenian photographer/Renaissance man (he also has a PhD in physics, teaches mathematics and astronomy, and plays a variety of musical instruments) Suren Manvelyan’s series of macro photographs of human eyes called Your Beautiful Eyes. The complexity of the iris is revealed in these remarkable photographs, almost appearing to be some foreign landscape. The intricate fibrous structure of the eye is just breathtaking, and something, ironically enough, we cannot see with our eyes alone. Manvelyan’s lighting is particularly noteworthy… these photos could have been much less impressive in the hands of a less adept photographer. Absolutely beautiful (and almost otherworldly). Be sure to also check out Manvelyan’s animal eye series here and here.
