X-Ray Photography of Nature by Arie van ‘t Riet


“As a physicist I specialized in radiation physics. Especially in very low energy X-rays.  Some years ago I started to use these experience in X-ray photography. An amazing kind of black and white photography.
Looking with X-ray eyes to nature. That’s what I like to experience with my X-ray camera. I prefer X-ray objects of ordinary scenes like a butterfly nearby a flower, a fish in the ocean, a mouse in the field, a haron along the riverside, a bird in a tree and so on.
Each time it is challenging me to arrive at an X-ray photograph that represents the sentiment of the scene, do raise questions and excite curiosity. I hope, in most of the images presented here I succeeded.”
