Looking with X-ray eyes to nature


Radiation physicist Arie van`t Riet discovered his artistic drive through the use of his x-ray machine, helping him reveal the beauty inside of nature. It all began when his colleague asked him to take an x-ray of one of his art paintings. Riet calls his works “bioramas” and prefers to X-ray objects of ordinary scenes like a butterfly nearby a flower, a fish in the ocean, a mouse in the field, or a bird in a tree.

  1. Wow incredible. I’ve got a picture of an x-rayed flower on my wall but it’s black-and-white. Never seen anything like these color pictures – so eerie and beautiful!

  2. Interesting doesn’t begin to cover it. Beautiful and eerie. I love the poppies. The wee animals are so fragile looking, it’s kind of scary. I feel as if they will break apart…delicate and all that strength and life in such tiny bones. Lovely photographs.
