    The angle at which, the searing gaze of, this pair of eyes has been captured makes the viewer accountable to the moment at hand. It bridges the distance between where this image was captured and where a given viewer is witnessing it at. The Eye Spy assignment was meant to transport individuals to the places the eyes were located in, to witness what they were gazing upon. This series does that effectively, powerfully and in an unexpected palette of vibrant hues.
