For decades, X-radiation has allowed doctors and scientists to see ailments in the body. Whether it’s finding where the exact break of a bone is or finding an illness such as cancer, this technology has been life-changing.
Hugh Turvey uses this technology to scan the body and turning it into works of art. The Brit describes his medium as “xogram,” a marriage of photography and x-ray where he often gives his images colour to enhance the experience.
The artist-in-residence at the British Institute of Radiology admits he sees the world different from everyone else. “I view most of the world around me in terms of how I imagine it is internally and how it would look if we were to try and x-ray it,” explains Turvey.
