the-world-through-my-eyes

Dear Dan Howell:

Dear Daniel James Howell, I wish you could see yourself through my eyes. I wish you could see how happy you look compared to back when you saw yourself as “a nobody.” I wish you could see what I see when I look at you in 2009. Full of hidden happiness just waiting to be given to the world.

Most importantly, I wish you could see yourself through my eyes when I think about all you’ve overcome. You’ve said all too many times that you have no potential, or that you’re average. That you’re full of existential fear.

Dear Daniel James Howell, who told you those lies? Who ever looked into your warm, welcoming eyes and convinced you that you’re average with no future?  I guess it doesn’t matter who, really. All that matters is that you understand that you are above average. That existential fear doesn’t define who you are, and it has never stopped you. Look how far you’ve come.

I wish you could see yourself through my tear filled eyes when I feel like I’m useless. When I’m worthless, stupid, annoying and everything in between. When I listen to your words of comfort, or hear that all too wonderful laugh. When just the thought of you alone can make me understand that I am worthwhile. I am beautiful, caring, capable, smart, beautiful and everything in between.

Dear Daniel James Howell, please never forget how far you’ve come, and how much you mean to me. How much you really mean to all of us. Please never forget how many lives you’ve saved, and how many people are here to support you. Please don’t forget that life has a meaning, and you may have yet to see that you’ve found your meaning.

Dear Daniel James Howell, how I truly wish you could see yourself through our eyes. Because I don’t think you’ll ever be able to understand how much you’re loved.


-Dear Phil Lester

Legally Blind Man Shows How He Sees The World By Creating Hypnotizing GIFs

George Redhawk doesn’t let his blindness stop him from creating surreal, morphing GIFs. He began to lose his vision while teaching medicine, including phlebotomy, but the disability forced Redhawk to give up his trade after four years. Suffering from visual distortions created by his mind trying to fill the gaps in his vision, he turned to computer technology to create “The World Through My Eyes” series. (Source)

The Brilliant Photomanipulation and Animation Skills of George Redhawk aka DarkAngelOne, Unbelievable Skill as he is also legally Blind

Despite being legally blind, artist George Redhawk created this stunning series of gifs using photo manipulation in order to show how he sees with his damaged sight. The World Through My Eyes gives us a a small glimpse into an otherwise inaccessible perspective. “To create most of my .gifs, I am using a photo morphing software which I have been experimenting with and perfecting over several years. Morphing software is designed to morph one photo to another photo, but a long time ago, I discovered that if I morph a photo to the exact same photo, I could get some pretty amazing movement out of it. Following the loss of most of my vision, I began to explore this medium as a means to express the world through my damaged sight. My art is designed with the idea to challenge and in some cases, disturb the visual sense of ‘order’, very much in the same way that my vision has become a constant challenge to me. It is also for this reason I refer to my work as, The World Through My Eyes.”  Txt Via

Seeing New York in Cinemagraphs by Kevin Burg and Jamie Beck | via

We’ve already introduced the amazing Cinemagraphs by Kevin Burg and Jamie Beck. As an homage to the place they’re living, and working, they created the animated series ‘Seeing New York – through my Giorgio Armani lenses’, showing us the world trough their eyes.

The result is a series of intriguing moving pictures that make us feel as if we were right there, observing Times Square, Central Park and the Grand Central station through the classic Armani lenses. If you are interested in the glasses, you can find them here.
