Unusual macrophotography of the human eye

Необычные макрофотографии глаз человека

Human vision (visual perception) is the process of psycho-physiological processing of images of objects of the surrounding world, carried out by the visual system, and allows one to obtain an idea of ​​the magnitude, shape (perspective) and color of objects, their relative position and distance between them. According to various sources, from 80% to more than 90% of the information a person receives through vision.

The human eye is a paired sensory organ (the organ of the visual system) of a person that has the ability to perceive electromagnetic radiation in the light wavelength range and provides a vision function. The eyes are located in front of the head and together with eyelids, eyelashes and eyebrows, are an important part of the face. The area of ​​the face around the eyes is actively involved in facial expressions. The eye of vertebrates is the peripheral part of the visual analyzer, in which the photoreceptor function is performed by photosensory cells ("neurocytes") of its reticular membrane. The maximum optimum of the day sensitivity of the human eye is the maximum of the continuous spectrum of solar radiation, located in the "green" region 550 (556) nm. When moving from daylight to twilight, the maximum of light sensitivity shifts towards the short-wave part of the spectrum, and the objects of red (for example, poppy) appear to be black, blue (cornflower) - very light (phenomenon Purkinje).

A series of works by photographer Suren Manvelyan ( " Your Beautiful Eyes") shows the pupils of the human eye shot in macro mode. The level of detail inside the eye is amazing!
