Prepare for an eye-opening art experience as Eye Origin transforms the spectacular image of your iris into an original piece for your personal collection.
The concept that began in Barcelona and expanded to New York City’s downtown art scene, merges an open gallery space with a by-appointment service for individuals to become the subject of their own art.
“The human eye has always been a remarkable part of our body; through it, we perceive the world and connect intimately with others. With a skilled photographer working the lens of a high-definition camera, we are able to capture what makes each iris so unique. With regular vision, the eye may just appear brown or blue, but every Eye Origin piece demonstrates, like a snowflake, the magnificent detail and individuality of a person’s eye. It is an art form that mirrors the inexplicable beauty of each individual,” said Eye Origin gallerist and Founder, Stéphane Heno.
How it works
Book an appointment: With locations in SoHo and, most recently, the Flatiron District, it’s simple for New Yorkers and tourists to book an appointment for themselves or a dear person for a memorable gift.
Come in to be photographed: At your appointment, Eye Origin will capture an image using unparalleled iris photography. The technology displays distinct features of the iris, which is made up of millions of colors of all different shades and intensities. After meticulous editing, the final image is breathtaking, singular only to the person whose eye it is.
Choose your frame: Eye Origin pieces are framed professionally in-house and available in different finishes (acrylic and premium acrylic), frames (round, block or square) and sizes (from 8 to 47 inches).
Receive your Eye Origin by mail: For convenience, Eye Origin provides worldwide shipping so you can open your masterpiece immediately and find the perfect place to elevate your interior. In addition, you receive a JPEG. file of your eye to save and share your own beauty anywhere.
With no two pieces alike, each Eye Origin piece is an original work of art that is custom framed by the gallery. Pricing ranges from $149 for digital to $400 to $5,000 depending on size. Prints can be shipped globally for the benefit of world travelers, those who do not live in close proximity to the galleries and individuals who receive an Eye Origin piece as an unforgettable gift.
