X-rays have been around for nearly 200 years, surely someone must have used it for artistic purposes. Turns out that Dr. Dain L. Tasker was that person.
The 20th century radiologist was fascinated by the varying anatomic features of blooms. So much that he used an X-ray machine to capture the insides of the soft layerings of petals and leaves. The result is a series of visually impeccable photographs that speak for the natural beauty and intricacy of flowers. Taskers described flowers as “the expression of the love life of plants”, and it’s clear to see why.
