These pictures are surreal.

They look like far away galaxies, or the surface of another planet. That"s what Armenian photographer Suren Manvelyan discovered once he started examining the human eye.

This curiosity led him to explore the iris, the colored ring around the pupil. Manvelyan said the texture only visible at near-microscopic levels surprised him. He began asking everyone—friends, coworkers, even strangers—to examine their eyes.

Manvelyan told A+ he had always been fascinated with eyes. "The eye is the most 'human' part of the man. It is the gate to the soul," he said.

Before long, he had a stunning collection showcasing the human eye's complexities.

While he's willing to share his work with others, he's understandably hesitant to identify the equipment used in his shoots.
