Photographer Bob Poe will present Eye Photo, an exhibition of photographs created exclusively through his iPhone that explore the human eye, beginning Saturday, June 19th through August 15th.
An opening reception is scheduled from 6 to 9 p.m. June 19th at the Bob Poe Gallery at Bergamot Station, 2525 Michigan Ave. G8A, Santa Monica.
Poe says he used the eyes of friends, acquaintances and complete strangers to explore the “ambiguous nature” of the human eye through a single photograph. The works also display large-scale reproductions of the eye.
“Each of my exhibitions begins with a curiosity about a theme or object, usually come across by accident,” explains Poe. “This exhibition is no exception, as the photographs of eyes grew from a casual project to a deeper analysis of emotion, deception and identity.”
The photographer said that due to his background in creative fields and his drive to imaginatively use innovative products, he began experimenting with iPhone photography.
“Of all the photographs of eyes that I shot for this exhibition, one is non-human,” said Poe. “The fun is going to be the inevitable guessing game for the viewer.”
