Eyemazing: Macro Photos of Animals’ Eyes

Under a macro lens, the eye takes on new dimensions of intricate detail reminiscent of surreal landscapes and otherworldly surfaces. In Animal Eyes, Armenian photographer Suren Manvelyan’s extreme close-ups offer a glimpse into an unseen reality in the eyes of animals, both domestic and exotic.

Each eye is as unique as the species it belongs to. Waves of brown ripples wash over a milky blue pupil in the eye of a llama. The macaw parrot’s eye could be compared to a dark black meteor impact on the moon. The eye of the husky mimics a white and blue wintry mountainous landscape. These surrealist images could be mistaken for a scene from a far away galaxy, rather than something that exists in the eye socket of your dog.

Manvelyan, who also holds a PhD in theoretical physics, manages to bind technology, science and art. In a reality that can only be seen with the technology of a macro lens, we bare witness to the complexities of this beautiful organ.
