An incredible series of flower scans showing the inner beauty of what we are accustomed to seeing the outside of made by British artist Nick Veasey. The power of the imagery is intensified by the perception of fragility and soft boundary of the flowers with the outside world – their edges finely disappear into the background.
Nick Veasey has been using x-ray do dig deeper beneath the surface of everyday objects “countering our society’s current obsession with superficial appearance”. His profound interest in using x-ray techniques stems also from the abundance of surveillance surrounding our everyday life – airport scanners, cellphone locators, email and postal mail screening are things people have become accustomed to.
Make sure to check out his entire series of x-rayed objects ranging from buses and airplanes to musical instruments and animals.
