25 Colossal Close-Ups

From Up-Close Facial Portraits to Soulful Eyetography

— May 23, 2010 — Fashion
These colossal close-ups show that shooting from the neck up can deliver some of the most effective and intriguing photographs ever. Body parts, clothing, backdrops and props are rendered useless here; instead, the intensity of the subject's eyes take command.

I dare you to look away from these controversial close-ups, evil eye pictorials and facial remixing on display. From up-close facial portraits to soulful eyetography, take a good look at these colossal close-ups.
