Do x-rays make the personal impersonal, stripping out our humanity to examine our inner structures? If so, French artist Marc Ferrante has perhaps recaptured it. Collaborating with puppeteers and other hand artists, he's created a collection of approximately 100 hand radiographs, exploring "whether life can be breathed into these images."
Normal things like kissing and handshakes suddenly look really creepy. Artwork by Hugh Turvey, artist in residence at the British Institute of Radiology. These pieces were made using X-ray equipment, shadow photography techniques, hand colorization, and other manipulations.
