Photographer Suren Manvelyan has produced an amazing collection of photographs of eyes over the last couple of years.  He started with a phenomenal set of images from human eyes and has now expanded his collections to include 3 sets of animal eyes. Part 1, Part 2 and now Part 3.

Spending some time looking through them is a good investment, particularly if you consider the evolution that has shaped the biology as looking at the different structures of the outer eyes gives you clues as to the environments these organisms live in.

A Different Lens

Jery October has put together a supercut/short film of a montage of eyes in cinema set to Jackson Browne’s Doctor My Eyes.  The short was edited by Bob Joyce and presented at the Society of Camera Operators Lifetime Achievement Awards ceremony which benefitted The Vision Center at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles.

It starts with City Lights, one of my favorite Charlie Chaplin films, and proceeds to include images from an incredible cinematic retrospective.  See if you can guess which movies they came from.
