In recent posts, I’ve explored the dark eyes in an old photograph of me. I worked with that photograph in the posts: ‘When are Portraits Self Portraits?‘, Dirty Blond, Negative Blond, Disorientation, Eye, Closer, and ‘Underworked?‘. I’m sure that I have squeezed much of the creative potential from that motif.
Below is an array of photographs of eyes from my two brothers and me. Each deserves further consideration in terms of what they express to the viewer and conjecture about what inner feelings produced the expression, if one can say that a single eye can emote.
