X-ray Christmas Gifts by Hugh Turvey

X-ray Christmas Gifts by Hugh Turvey

A fascinating way to find out what's inside that present under the Christmas tree. He explains his process:
I love using film. The hands on approach and the manipulation of technique: overexposure, multiple exposure, chemical processing, filtering, rigs, mechanics, physics, happy accidents, trial and error and hand colouring. I do not work exclusively with one set of x-ray equipment rather I tailor the equipment to requirement: for example to capture a small insect of low density is very different to that of capturing the high densities of a sports motorbike. Simply put, the only difference between my x-ray images and the photograms produced by the early photographic pioneers is the frequency of the ‘light’ used to expose the ‘paper’.
