Born in 1976 in Armenia, Suren Manvelyan started to photograph when he was sixteen and became a professional photographer in 2006. What makes Suren’s photography so unique is that he focuses mostly on eyes, extreme close ups of eyes.

In this series called Animal Eyes, Suren took macro photography shots of the eyes of various different animal species, exposing their beauty and the incredible detail that might normally be hidden from the naked eye.

Not only is Suren an amazing photographer but he also received a PhD in Theoretical Physics from Yerevan State University in 2001, focusing on quantum chaos. He followed that the next year by winning The President Award of the Republic of Armenia for research in the field of quantum technologies. He plays five instruments. He teaches physics, mathematics and astronomy at the Yerevan Waldorf school. But even with all those accomplishments, his main love has always been photography.
