Comic: The Eye Camera by Carrie Liao


Do you ever have those times when you look up or around you and you see something like the scene above?



"I gotta get a picture of this"

“I gotta get a picture of this”




"What the hell?!"

“What the hell?!”

"This picture is a total turd! The colors are all off!"

“This picture is a total turd! The colors are all off!”







It always happens! I want to capture an amazing sight but pictures never do it justice. So I thought…


Wouldn’t it be nice…


…if our eyes were cameras…?

What we see with our eyes would be exactly what we get in the pictures… the vibrancy of the colors, the spectacular lighting, the subtle shadows…

When you see something that just needs to be captured…


…all you would have to do to take a picture is blink and…

    This reminds me of “Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou”, the sci-fi/slice of life comic series that got me into photography. Their cameras contain artificial eyeballs, and, beyond capturing images, they actually preserve -memories-.

    The photographic equipment made with out current technology is amazing enough, but imagine what technological wonders and new possibilities would be made available to future generations of photographers. It’s a bit strange, but I’m already envious of the people who have yet to be born.
