The gate to our secret garden : EYES

by Yvette Depaepe
Published the 16th of April 2021


'the black scarf' by Peppe Tambè


Aren't our eyes the open windows from 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, they are indeed gates into our most intimate corners, which makes us both vulnerable and powerful.

Images with eyes often tell us 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 images out of the 1x archives.
They all force us to stop and stare at them, trying to unearth somehow the secret stories they might hide.
If you take a careful look, they will transport you to a different place, time, feeling and state of mind.

Eyes that speak ... all have an inner soul and emotions. Beautiful work and congratulations to all selected artists!
Excellent collection! Beautiful eyes are very attractive. :)) Thank you, dear Yvette.
Beautiful selection.
Each of these eyes has secrets behind it that are hidden and out of reach for us, and that makes it attractive,Every look has a magical origin that comes from the eye, just like a camera that captures a pure subject at a particular moment,Thanks to drear Yvette for this professional and skillful choice and congratulations to all.
