The Irish photographer David Knaus, who has published a book about vintage photography on Amazon, has published an eye-opening new book about eye-wear and its relationship to the photographic eye.
Read moreDavid Knauss’ new book, Vintage Eyewear: The Role of the Photographic Eye in the Art of Photography, is out now.
His book was the inspiration for the new book Eyewear: The Story Behind the Art and Technology of Eyewear.
“This book is about how the eye has been the symbol of the human experience, its role in the history of art, and what it means to wear it,” he said.
“We’re talking about how eye-gear became a symbol of beauty, fashion, and social and political activism.”
Knauss, who lives in Dublin, said the first time he met the people who made his eye-glasses he felt he was a part of history.
“I met them on the streets and they were just as interested in what I was wearing as they were in what the eye was making possible for them,” he explained.
“They wanted to know if it was good for me, if it made me happy or if it hurt me.
It was a very strange experience for me to meet these people who were wearing the most amazing things in the world and I felt that they understood the relationship of art to the human body and I wanted to understand that.”

It also looks at the history behind the creation of eyewear, which has come in many forms, from earrings to eye bags, and the history surrounding the first eye-watches.
“The first eye is a symbol for the human soul and the human heart and its history is a story of love, pain, and beauty,” he continued.
“And it’s all a story that is deeply connected to eye-fashion.”
“It’s a story about how we have changed the world for the better.
It’s a beautiful story.”
