Photography: The Mystery Behind Covering One Eye

One Eye Symbolism and Photography
Advertisement

Sometimes I feel like such a moron when trying to understand sophisticated designers and photographers. There is nothing more humbling than reading about the existential philosophical thoughts of an artist, and at the end of it, just thinking… Huh?

Ahn Sang-Soo is one of those artists. I want to understand, I almost get it, but I’m not quite there. He has a fairly well known photo series called one.eye. Over the past few years, on his photography blog, he’s posted over 2,000 very interesting photos of ordinary people, each with either their hand or an object covering one eye.

These people are students, artists, colleagues, professors, poets, friends, kids, etc… and they are all covering an eye. What does this mean? Covering one eye does bring all of these people together, kind of like creating a common language. Perhaps it’s to symbolize the all-seeing eye. I don’t know. I guess I’m resigned to the fact that it’s waaaay above my head, and that’s cool. Either way, these photographs are intriguing and very interesting. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have. You can learn more about Ahn Sang-Soo at ssahn. I was trying to figure out why those last two pictures were in the collection, and then duh… pretty cool Ahn!

Covering one eye is a simple statement. Among the majority of creative minds it has no relation to the occult or the Mason brotherhood. It simply suggests, “You don’t see me because you don’t know me”. It’s a message to critics, a defiant insult to those that miss the connection, and it’s a show of honour and respect to those who connect to their works of art (ie: audio, visual, subliminal), to their mission(s), to their purpose, to their statements, to their messages, to their existence.
