look me in the eye captures and isolates the eyes of numerous animals, birds and reptiles. Taken as a vignette, the eye reveals inidividuality, vualnerability and depth. The repetition of eyes becomes an atypical model within the conventions of portraiture and positions the viewer in an eye-to-eye / voyeur to voyeur relationship with the subject. Andison's concept sprung from the notion of "how could you kill something that you could look in the eye."
