Dry Your Tears by Lucas Simões

Another project by Lucas Simões sees the haunting treatment of photographic portraits by presumably burning through the eyes. Whilst the images themselves aren't of a particularly disturbing nature, the destruction of them using such a brutal media and to create such sensitive forms results in something quite grotesque but enchanting.

A person's eyes reveal a lot about their feelings and emotions, and carving them out with fire, only to leave a hole there almost takes away the person's identity, their soul. We wouldn't be able to tell who these people are, void of emotion but the emotion given to them through theirs that really cannot be "dried".

Check out the rest of the images below:
