Unusual macrophotography of the human eye

Необычные макрофотографии глаз человека

Human vision (visual perception) is a process of psychophysiological image processing of objects of the surrounding world, carried out by the visual system, and allows you to get an idea of ​​the size, 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 (organ of the visual system) of a person, which is capable of perceiving electromagnetic radiation in the light wavelength range and providing the function of vision. The eyes are located in the front of the head and together with the eyelids, eyelashes and eyebrows, are an important part of the face. The face area 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 the photosensory cells (“neurocytes”) of its retina. The maximum optimum of the daily sensitivity of the human eye falls on the maximum of the continuous spectrum of solar radiation, located in the "green" region of 550 (556) nm. When moving from daylight to twilight, the maximum light sensitivity moves towards the shortwave part of the spectrum, and objects of red (for example, poppy) appear black, blue (cornflower) - very light (Purkinje phenomenon).

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