Extreme Close-Ups of the Human Eye

Suren Manvelyan is a photographer and physics teacher. He's created a series of detailed images of the human eye called "Your Beautiful Eyes":

The 34-year-old from Yerevan, Armenia, explains: '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.

'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.'

This is amazing! I found out about the intricate design of eyes a short while ago when I was experimenting with my cameras macro setting. Now I look closer at everybody's eyes. No matter the color, their all beautiful!

Wow... what an incredible image. Thats what I love about Macro photograghy, It brings to life the everyday things we see and take for granted, but largely remain unnoticed. Splendid... a real eye opener.(pun intended)

I'm with FK, it kinda freaked me out. I think because it looks so tenuous and loose, like at any second it could be lost and swept away with a slight breeze.

Plus, lots of brown eyes. Would have liked to have seen more blues and greens.

I've seen pictures of my retina many times. Its all scarred up from an accident. But never such close pictures of the front of an eye. Guess its true the "Eyes are the doorways to your soul"
