Gaze Into the Eyes of Animals Through Stunning Macro Shots


Armenian photographer Suren Manvelyan (previously) decided to explore in his ongoing macro photography series of stunning animal eye portraits. In order to capture animals from an amplified and personal perspective, the photographer gets up close and personal with the most unexpected, cute, and often dangerous animals, such as crocodiles, hippos, and chinchillas.

Without any exaggeration, the results are otherworldly. As the photographer himself mentioned in a statement to Radio Free Europe/ Radio Liberty, “The surface resembles the surface of other planets, with craters, rivers, and valleys. It looks like something from another world. Every time I photograph the eye, I feel myself traveling through the cosmos.”
