Photographer Brendan Fitzpatrick based in Sydney, Australia, is popular for his X-ray photography. One of his clients requested him to create a photo that was similar to an X-ray. To achieve this kind of photography, Brendan had to implement both chest X-ray and mammogram machines in his work. He says that the photos came out very well when he had use actual X-rays. Here are some amazing photos that portray his excellent photography.
Brendan started his first floral x-ray art back in 2012. Now, he has added three more collections including toys, creatures and new set of flowers to his Invisible Light series. Currently he’s working on a roast chicken dinner with rosemary and lemon. It’s indeed a gothic photography.
He says “There’s a certain amount of chance involved when choosing what to X-ray. Some subjects can be rendered unrecognizable when X-rayed and just look like a scrambled mess. I look at shapes and silhouettes. If the shape is distinctive and interesting I’m willing to take a risk on what the inside might have to offer.”
“The engineering that goes into these essentially disposable objects is really incredible. There’s a lot of talent out there in those anonymous industrial estates.”
“The Chinook Helicopter has a wonderful mechanism. The back door opens, a tank and a soldier come out, fire a few rounds then get back in to the flight and the ramp shuts down behind them. The entire machine is circling the floor while the rotors spin, there’s loads of engine noise and gunfire and the lights flash. You will appreciate the person who put that much care and character and charm into a cheap toy.”
“I have to mention the Talking Cat and Dog image. They didn’t look like much in the store but I reckoned they looked stupid enough to work. You know you’re looking at a cat and a dog but you’ve seen them like this. Somehow they look like a couple. The pieces of tape holding the wiring in place I’ve not seen in another toy. They make me think of bandages, which adds to the dog vs cat relationship.”
