This Photographer Captures How Unique Animals Eyes Are

3 min


Few people ever manage to photograph animals up close in the wild, especially dangerous ones. TV programs such as Planet Earth and Blue Planets give us insights into many aspects of animal life around the world, but one photographer has taken things a step further.

Suren Manvelyan from Armenia has managed to get so close to animals that he has captured incredibly detailed close-ups of their eyes. Some of Suren’s photos are so detailed, they look like distant planets that are yet-to-be-discovered. But the photos he has taken show something far more important, eyes are a window to the soul.

Born in 1976, Suren started to photograph when he was sixteen years old and became a professional photographer in 2006. His photographic interests span from Macro to Portraits, Creative photo projects, Landscape, and much more. Suren’s photos have been published in numerous magazines and newspapers in Armenia and worldwide.

2. Husky Dog

His latest popular series of close-ups on “Animal eyes,” have had millions of views on the Web. 

3. Alaskan Malamut

Taking photos of animals so close has been a logistical challenge for Suren. For example, he spent an hour with a Llama in its cage trying to get her to become familiar with him and get within the required range to take the photo he needed for his collection. “I would like to stress that all animals included in the series were alive and no animal was hurt in any way during shoots,” the photographer added.
