Eyes that Tell Stories: Unique Iris Portraits

Eyes that Tell Stories is a photographic exploration of the human eye from a new and unique perspective. Photographer and digital artist Jorg Sundermann documented the irises of handful of famous people to highlight the individuality of each person's eyes and raise awareness for research. The results are pretty amazing, at first I thought they might be piles of powder, but as I read on was amazed to find they are in fact eyes with artistic editing.

The exhibition, at Red Dot Design Museum, is from the Singapore Eye Research Institute (SERI) to create interest in eye research. It also acts as a fundraiser to help SERI continue research for new treatments and prevention strategies against eye diseases and blindness (every minute a child goes blind, and 80% of blindness is avoidable). See the famous owners of these peepers at SERI's Project page.
