1800s Portrait of three women featured in the book The Unseen Eye: Photographs from the Unconscious by W.M. Hunt. The Unseen Eye: Photographs from the Unconscious presents a wonderfully idiosyncratic and compelling collection of photographs assembled around a particular theme: in each image, the gaze of the subject is averted, the face obscured or the eyes firmly closed.
