“We live in a world obsessed with image. What we look like, what our clothes look like, houses, cars… I like to counter this obsession with superficial appearance by using X-rays to strip back the layers and show what it is like under the surface. Often the integral beauty adds intrigue to the familiar.”

“We all make assumptions based on the external visual aspects of what surrounds us and we are attracted to people and forms that are aesthetically pleasing. I like to challenge this automatic way that we react to just physical appearance by highlighting the, often surprising, inner beauty.”

“We all know we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, that beauty is more than skin deep. By revealing the inside, the quintessential element of my art speculates upon what the manufactured and natural world really consists of.”

UK photographer  creates fascinating works of art using x-ray technology. His images reveal the structural anatomy of his subjects, which range from human body parts, small personal items to large forms of transport such as cars, buses, bulldozers and even airplanes. For safety reasons, Vasey has built a bespoke concrete structure to contains the radiation – this is where he captures most of his images using various x-ray machines and high-res scanners. Each image is composed of a complex collage of multiple x-rays which are layered to create the final money-shot. Simply superb.

Since these images really need to be seen bigger to be fully appreciated, I highly suggest having a play with the gallery below to open each image in a bigger window. Enjoy.
