    I almost always dodge the eyes on a portrait because I want them to stand out, but I suppose that you could carefully burn. You could make a print, and then cut out the eyes to make a mask, then burn through the mask.

    If you did not dodged them enough - I learned recently that you can slightly make them lighter (and more pop uout) with very diluted potassium ferricyanide.

    I think that is what was done here.. not to mention exposure development of the negative to record mostly the high end and drop the shadow end.. The lighting also helps.

    If you drag this image into PS you can brighten the image to actually see the eyes, that is why I do not think ink was applied to the print.

    For me the eyes are the mirror of the soul, so to speak.
    The exhibition is called Masks. Masks are what the eyes betray, so take away the eyes to reveal the mask at work. In this case the mask is revealed without the presence of the peepers that give it away, so a mask hiding in plain sight. There it is, a mask purporting to be just that, a mask. Only it draws us into the human behind it and a longing to see the soul.

    I like it.

    If you can do one without a face and everyone knows who it is, a missing eye should be a piece of cake.
