Looking into someone’s eyes for a prolonged period can simultaneously unnerve and bring closeness. Oxytocin is released and the personal boundaries we maintain are challenged. Connections, emotions, sublanguage, healing, all flow between us via the eyes.
The subjects in this series are all famous faces who are regularly held in the public gaze. Each photograph however forces us to look at them in a different way, and see a side that reveals a different truth. Each of these people have made a mark in this world and have tried, to some extent or another, to choose what to show of themselves. What you seldom see are the struggles, happiness, anger, sadness, joy and emotions experienced in private. The limited box set edition includes Sting, Peter Gabriel, Susan Sarandon, Kevin Bacon, Rufus Wainwright, Pussy Riot, and more. Each subject has handwritten the names of their parents as another mark of what makes us all unique.
A book of Eye-D will be coming out in 2018 featuring many more subjects such as Johnny Depp, Paul Simon, Robert Plant, Lou Reed, David Byrne, Annie Lennox, Michael Stipe, Randy Newman, Tom Petty, The Edge, BonIver, and more.
