Underneath the Surface

X-rays of flowers by Hugh Turvey.

Complex and very much alive are things that come to my mind when looking at these beautiful x-rays. They're definitely a different way of using the (medical) tool invented by Wilhelm Röntgen.

I think that these x-rays are just another form of photography, even though there is probably less effort envolved with lighting I'm guessing. I wonder if many other photographers have explored this form of photography, and what their subjects could have been.

After seeing the images I couldn't help but think about the use of x-ray images in fashion, because I know they're there and already exist, which made me want to know more, and see more interpretations of it. So I did the obvious thing and went to lookbook.nu.
