20 Stunning Photos Of Animal Eyes By Armenian Photographer Suren Manvelyan

Published 3 weeks ago

Suren Manvelyan is an Armenian photographer who loves to photograph animals from up close – very close. So close, in fact, that all you can see is their eyes! And you’ll be surprised by all the little details that they hide.

In a recent interview with Bored Panda, the photographer said he came up with the idea for the series after doing a similar one with human eyes. “After the first project, I had really improved in shooting eyes in any conditions, and eventually settled on the idea to photograph animal eyes,” said Suren.

Suren began capturing animal eyes everywhere he could, from backyards to zoos. Eventually, people started to contact him and ask to shoot the eyes of their pets.

Suren explained that the reason for such a variety of different eyes is that every animal has to adapt to the conditions that they live in. “Water animals have completely different eyes than those living on earth, too. I think this is what makes the animal eye series so interesting to the viewer,” pondered the photographer. He even managed to turn his photo series into a little game – he would upload a photo and the fans would try to guess which animal it belongs to.

It takes true dedication to capture the photos – Suren once spent a whole hour in a llama cage just so he could get familiar with the animal and take the photo from the right distance! “I would like to stress that all animals included in the series were alive and no animal was hurt in any way during shoots,” added the photographer.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
