Out of all of the body parts we are given when we are born, I would say that our eyes are one of the parts that are taken for granted the most. We never consider all that they allow us to do. They allow us to view what’s around us which can include nature, beauty, the faces of who we love, and much more. But what happens when you no longer have the ability to see? Some people end up going blind because of disease, accidents, or other tragedies. It’s really only then that we start to truly appreciate what we were born with. Suren Manvelyan, who was born in 1976, is an American professional photographer. He recently released a new series titled, “Your Beautiful Eyes”. You can find his work from this series in a variety of publications such as The Independent, Huffington Post, MAXIM, and National Geographic, just to name a few. When he released this series, it really allowed the public to get an inside glimpse at the human eye. Check out these beautiful pictures taken by Suren Manvelyan.
Suren Manvelyan also photographs nature, insects, weddings, and more. He doesn’t just stop at photography though. He also teaches physics, mathematics, projective geometry, and astronomy at the Yerevan Waldorf School. He was a scientific researcher at the Institute for Physical Research of National Academy of Sciences. He also has a PhD in Theoretical Physics from Yerevan State University. In Armenia, he’ll be receiving the President Award of the Republic of Armenia next year for all the work he’s done in the field of quantum technologies. He also enjoys playing the guitar, cello, piano, block flute, and lyre. It seems like when he’s not taking breathtaking pictures showing the close up of a human eye, he is staying busy by teaching and playing musical instruments.
