Much more than meets the eye. Armenian physics teacher Suren Manvelyan has created his own secret process of macro photography to create the tiny yet astounding details contained within the human eye. His photography really is a source of wonder that leaves you feeling as though you've been duped by all the eye balls you've seen throughout life. They are not in fact smooth and marble like. Instead they are these incredible landscapes of texture and complex composition. Manvelyan describes them as "surfaces of unknown planets." He captured these macro ocular portraits of friends, colleagues and pupils (heh) which now allow us to see up close and personal the texture of the irises we stare into everyday. The pigmented fibrous surface shows an intricate, rocky texture and it's fascinating to see the gradient that exists within the iris. Eye color may appear solid, but up close it is anything but, revealing a full spectrum of various shades. Manvelyan has shared his images with the world, but won't yet share his secret to capturing them.
