These pictures are a sight for sore eyes.
For while they may resemble the dramatic surface of the Red Planet they are actually the eye-catching images of the human iris in all its glorious detail - each one as unique as a fingerprint.
Physics teacher Suren Manvelyan took these ocular portraits using his friends, colleagues and pupils as models.
For the first time these intensely detailed shots provide a microscopic look at the human eye structure, providing viewers with a different perspective of its complexity.
The 34-year-old from Yerevan, Armenia, explains: 'It is quite natural when you shoot macro shots of insects and plants, but to try to make a picture of the eye? I did not expect these results.
