The Third Eye.

The Third Eye. Photographs by Michael J. Benari. Michael J. Benari, 2010. 28 pp., black & white illustrations throughout, 11x9½".

Michael J.Benari says of the book 'The Third Eye':

"The concept of the 'third eye' has origins in spiritual traditions, to imply greater awareness, insight or enlightenment. For me the concept is more personal, relating to the layers of perception and inner vision that work to build one's artistic output.

One source of inspiration is the urban landscapes, where randomness and chaos intersect to create graphic elements full of emotional and psychological tensions and mystery.

I engage the viewer to reach below the surface, to search for hidden references that somehow resonate both personally and universally."
