This Incredible Close-Up Shot Of The Human Eyeball Will Freak You Out
The human eyeball is extremely fascinating, with the entire idea of vision being an incredible concept. Chances are, however, you’ve never seen a human eyeball like this.
The highly detailed images show the complex and intricate textures hidden within the iris that give our eyes our unique and enchanting character.
The macro ocular portraits were taken by Armenian physics teacher Suren Manvelyan, 36, using his friends, colleagues and pupils as models.
“It is quite natural when you shoot macro shots of insects and plants, but to try to make a picture of the eye? I did not expect these results,” he said.
“I was not aware they are of such complicated appearance. Everyday we see hundreds of eyes but do not even suspect they have such beautiful structure, like surfaces of unknown planets.”
The images are truly breathtaking, showing that eyes have features much deeper than color.
Manvelyan refuses to share how he takes the photos, however.
“The process of taking these pictures is my secret,” he says.
More of the photographer’s work can be seen on his website.
