X-ray photography project by Nick Veasey.
“To create these x-ray artworks serious risks and procedural hurdles need to be managed. The results are worth the hassle. X-ray allows us to see what is normally hidden to the human eye. It reveals the subjects from the inside out and allows us to appreciate what the world around us is truly made of.
In contemporary life, where so much of what we see has been embellished or has a level of artifice, the honesty and integrity the x-ray reveals has a simple, pure elegance.
In a nutshell, the work is a statement against society’s obsession with superficiality.”
