One may compare the images in the Eyes That Tell Stories photo series to a bunch of beautiful and surreal irises. This art series hones in on one of our most important senses: sight.

Shot by Singapore-based photographer Jorg Sundermann, the Eyes That Tell Stories series is a photographic exhibition by the Singapore Eye Research Institute that aims to create awarness about eye research. It features 14 well-known Singaporeans such as radio DJ Vernetta Lopez, filmmaker Royston Tan and Olympic swimmer Ang Peng Siong as well as their unique stories. Accompanying each stunning image is a video that shows viewers exactly what each of these local celebrities see and how they continue to see by getting their eyes checked for potential diseases.
