Artist Nick Veasey opens up the fascinating inner workings of everyday objects using the power of x-rays.
Creating these spellbinding images is dangerous work, and of course working with radiation is not without its health risks. The vast majority of the x-ray work is created inside a custom-built concrete chamber with a lead-lined door, and Nick uses several x-ray machines and a radiation-proof photographic head unit.
Who would have thought the inside of these everyday objects and machines could be so fascinating?
