Nick Veasey

Toiling over 14-inch sheets of X-ray film in a hangar in Kent, photographer Nick Veasey has revealed the shadowy interiors of objects as diverse as vacuum tubes, bulldozers, jet airliners — even fresh cadavers. By his own estimates, he’s photographed thousands of everyday items, often arranging them into tableaux that are at the same time familiar and luminously alien. They reveal surprising details and prove that items have an inner beauty.

The X-ray shows how beautiful nature can be. Not that that is particularly beautiful when you look at it with the human eye.
