M. Henry Jones is a man of many hats. He’s an experimental artist, skilled photographer and an accomplished animator. We caught up with him to discuss the 3D artwork, perfected in his Lower East Side workspace, that has gained him a steady following across New York City. Jones’ innovative Fly’s Eye photography demands complex camerawork, precision lens-making and careful computer manipulation. The end result? Striking three dimensional portraits that viewers can enjoy with their naked eyes.
