The Unseen Eye presents an idiosyncratic and compelling collection of photographs assembled around one theme: In each image, the gaze of the subject is averted, the face obscured, or the eyes firmly closed. Amassed over 30 years by New York collector W.M. Hunt, the collection includes works by masters such as Richard Avedon, Diane Arbus, Imogen Cunningham, William Klein, Robert Mapplethorpe, and Robert Frank, as well as works by lesser-known artists and vernacular images. The result is a series of surprising epiphanies about how and why one collects.
