Pictures from the upcoming book Eyes That Speak
Eyes that Speak is a revealing, behind-the-scenes, through-the-lens perspective on some of the famous eyes that have “spoken” to the world. While having the honor of capturing amazing moments and events in history during the course of a thirty-year photographic career, photo-journalist Christy Bowe has always learned something from each of her subjects. The power of the camera has transported her to places and exposed her to situations that most people only read about.
In an intimate and personal journey that spans photographing subjects from a declared terrorist to Queen Elizabeth II, separated by only a few yards and security personnel, this book captures those moments when a subject’s eyes speak to the world through photographic images. Eyes That Speak is a compelling, pictorial look into the work of a Washington-based photojournalist as she shares life lessons gained while capturing some of the most significant moments in history.
