It sounds like a cliché but I really had a hard time putting this book down so I read it very quickly, even though I did refer back frequently from the picture index to the photos.I was very intrigued by this book and I’m very grateful that I won it from First Reads giveaway program.This is a coffee table book with substance. The photographer/author uses security scanners and x-ray machines to take photos and then often enhances them using computer programs. There is sufficient material that [...]
I know that Nick may cringe when and if he reads this, but I mean it as high praise when I say this is a coffee table book of the highest order. This one should never see my bookshelves because it belongs out where it can inspire conversation.Once past the initial introduction, the collection is broken into four sections (objects, the body, nature, and fashion) with a picture index at the back. Each section has its own little intro bit and then the pictures are left to speak for themselves. At l [...]
This book provides an interesting look at the structure of everyday things. I most enjoyed the images that were made up of many x-rays. Certainly Veasey's work is a new look at the visual beauty revealed by x-ray photography. It's amazing how still and clean all of the images are. Occassionally I had to remind myself that I was looking at x-rays and not at graphic creations. There is a picture index at the back of the book which gives little insights into the creation of the images and I found t [...]
Very interesting look at the inner workings and insides of the world around us.
finally got it . Awesome work
This simple art book, entitled X-Ray, is a collection of artwork by Nick Veasey using state of the art X-Ray equipment. The works are divided into four sections: Objects, The Human Body, Nature and Fashion. As one might expect objects were inanimate objects like remote controls, computers, musical instruments, and shoes. The human body is self-explanatory. Nature involved anything from flowers, to sea shells to insects and Fashion dealt primarily with clothing.Simply said, I love this book. Like [...]
Mostly pictures of items using x-rays. This is an amazing book. Some of the pictures deserve to be pored over. The Nature section, especially, is very artistic, but I also enjoyed the Fashion segment.
Some interesting techniques but for my tastes many of the pictures have little added to them by being Xrays, or rely to heavily on the novel nature of an Xray photo and are not that intriguing. However they're are a few great gems worth flipping through this book for.
A never-thought-of image collection which is so interesting to read and enjoy and think!
Great pictures and a different outlook on the world
4.5 stars - Absolutely gorgeous.
