X-Ray machines are obtrusive in size, sound and in what they reveal. Used mostly in medical and security environments, they provide a glimpse into what is normally covered by human and non-human exoskeleton. Nick Veasay’s photo book, X-Ray is packed full of photographs of objects scanned under these large, dangerous mechanisms. Seeing the complex structure of plants, lightbulbs and other ordinary objects makes the viewer aware of what details can be observed by security scanners and x-ray machines.
