Armed with a Mamiya 645, a Phase One digital back, and a 120mm macro lens, Mathers photographed eyes. This project confirms what humans have known since before recorded time: eyes are astounding. In Mathers’ images we can see everything from contact lenses to the stunningly delicate epithelium and stroma, the latter two giving each iris their unique and amazing color variations.
At the conclusion of the video, it’s implied the subjects photographed are photographers themselves. Awesome concept and superb execution, Landon! See more of Mathers’ work at his site.
