X-Ray Photos Becomes Art
Nick Veasey takes photography a step farther, taking x-ray photos of all kind of objects. He came with the idea years ago when he wanted to find a Pepsi can with a ring-pull prize of £100,000 inside a truck, full with thousands of Pepsi cans. He did not find the prize but he discovered his passion.
With an x-ray device juts like hospitals use he started making amazing photos of all kinds of objects, like: a desk lamp, a flower, a stuffed bear and of large objects. A bobcat and even a Boeing 777. That takes a lot of shots and radiation to get it done.
When radiologist take x-rays photos of patients they do it in a fraction of a second. That’s why most of the time the photos aren’t sharp. Just last month I had photos taken after a nasty fall, I was in and out of the room in 10 minutes, including getting put on the table, and put in position for two photos.
Nick needs 12 minutes of full radiation exposures to get crisp and sharp x-ray shots. The results are amazing.
This Boeing 777 is the largest x-ray photo ever taken, it took 500 separate x-rays to stitch this photo together.
Everyday common objects are viewed form a total different point, literary
If you wonder how he takes photos of human skeletons considering the radiation factor; He either uses skeletons in rubber suits or, hold your seats, cadavers donated to science. He has 8 hours to use the cadaver before rigor mortis sets in.
We can assume this is a dead guy. This really goes deep if one is willing to work with cadavers for art.
It’s not all cold objects and dead people, there is also beauty to be seen.
