Turns out photographer David Maisel isn’t the only artist who enjoys using x-rays to create wonderfully detailed prints of unusual objects. We came across an article that documents how artist Nick Veasey uses X-Rays to image larger-than-life objects, including that massive Boeing 777 at the top of this post.
Nick uses a custom concrete structure he calls the “Black Box” to safely contain the radiation when exposing his uniquely massive objects.
We like his take on why he has chosen to use X-Ray as his medium of choice:
“I love the medium because in an often superficial world, it strips away all the superficial skin of the subject and concentrates on what it’s made from.”
