Eyes: the gate to our secret garden

by Carla DLM


by Naufal

I have always heard that the eyes are open windows into our soul. They can change our facial expression and show our emotions in a matter of seconds. They have the capability to reflect our feelings and emotions, expressing happiness, love, protection and comfort, but also anger, sadness or pain. Yes, I believe they are indeed gates into our most intimate corners, which makes us both vulnerable and powerful.

I admire those images in which the eyes can tell a story. Unfortunately, not every picture can transmit such a feeling; but when this is achieved, it is just fascinating.

Here is a selection of some images I found in the 1x archives. They forced me to stop and stare at them, trying to unearth somehow the secret stories they might hide. All of them, if you take a careful look, will transport you to a different place, time, feeling and state of mind.
