Eyes are basically how living creatures see the world. It is common for both animals and humans. While human eyes have the same features except for color, animal eyes vary from size to feature as there are many animal species.
Suren Manvelyan is an Armenian photographer with exceptional skills. Recently, he introduced his newest photograph collection of animal eyes. It is truly spectacular the way his photos catch the fine details of animal eyes.
Recently, Suren revealed the reason for his idea to start a photograph series regarding animal eyes. He said that he had previously done a similar collection with human eyes, and it encouraged him to plan out his new series.
The experience he got from the first project prepared him to shoot animal eyes in any condition. With those skills, he managed to get amazing photos of the eyes of different animals.
Of course, the effort he had to put out when producing these fantastic images is not minuscule. Once, Suren had to spend a whole hour in a llama cage because familiarizing with the animal is the basic process of taking a high-quality picture. First, he had to be friends with the animals to get the eye photo from the correct distance. Similarly, Suren worked patiently to take all these photos you can see below. They prove the pure talent and dedication of this photographer.
The collection includes the eyes of both water and land animals. Each animal eye in the series differs from one another because of the creature’s characteristics. The reason is animals live under different conditions, and they have to adapt to them. Some animals have an excellent sight at night, while some animals have no vision at all. Similarly, water animals have completely different eyes than those creatures living on the land. Suren states that these differences make the collection more interesting for viewers and himself.
According to Suren, he captured photos from backyards to zoos. With their popularity, he got many requests from people to shoot their pet’s eyes. He also started a little guessing game, where he would upload a picture of an animal eye for his fans to identify. As a true animal lover, Suren stresses that all animals used for the shootings are alive. He also didn’t hurt them during his photography. He further states that he would like to keep the technique used to capture the photos to himself because he spent a lot of time and energy perfecting those skills.
Photographs taken by Suren are honestly stunning. They let us see something which we rarely get to see. And we should be grateful for that. In this article, we have grabbed some of his photos for you to enjoy.
