I was looking through Steve McCurry’s photo gallery, and the “Afghan Girl” photo he shot for a National Geographic cover caught my attention. The girl’s eyes looked like they were war ravaged and fearful…amazing to get so much emotion from such a ‘simple’ photo.

I realized just how much eyes can communicate. The purpose of my series was to capture the individual character of each of my subject’s eyes. In order to focus attention there, I went about obscuring the rest of their face.
