The School of Looking: INVISIBLE LIGHT | See Through Me

SEE THROUGH ME: X rays collected to collage the human body from head to toe in transparency 

A conventional X-ray image is a black-and-white photographic film, which has been exposed to invisible light from a cathode tube emitting high energy, high frequency light that penetrates matter. Although these are negative images, they appear natural to us: white bone, dark tissue.

See Through Me is the result of a collaborative project begun during lockdown in March 2020. Departing from the monochrome X-ray tradition, they are printed as duotones, using contrasting, complementary colours to create highly coloured prints that are neither negative nor positive.
