It is said that the eyes are a window to the soul. They are what we look at first when we meet a stranger, and one of the most expressive parts of the human body. The eye speaks a complicated language that cannot be heard, only felt. The size of the pupil can be a sign of concentration or arousal. We look into each other’s eyes to show attentive interest, but often feel uncomfortable when stared at: an evolutionary trait designed to warn us against a predatory gaze.
This book is a testament to the power of the human eye. It brings together Anna Gabriel’s collection of photographs showing the eyes of numerous well-known rock and film stars up close, including David Byrne, Helena Christensen, Willem Dafoe, The Edge, Noel Gallagher, Annie Lennox, Susan Sarandon, Benjamin Zephaniah, Peter Gabriel, and many more.
