X-Ray Photography by Paula Fontaine – Design You Trust

X-Ray Photography by Paula Fontaine


These stunning coloured images show detailed x-ray images of everything from skulls to light bulbs. Artist Paula Fontaine, from Westminster Massachusetts, created the images using a process called digital map painting. To create the images the x-ray emission source – the head of the machine on an arm which focuses the beam – is placed over the object. Paula then retreats behind a shielded screen before activating the x-ray exposure. Here: Brain storm, conceptual composite X-ray.

Coloured X-ray of the carapace of a horseshoe crab (family Limulidae). Despite its name this animal is not closely related to true crabs, instead being closer to the spiders. It has remained essentially unchanged for the last 500 million years, and is considered to be a “living fossil”.

Carnations (Dianthus sp.), coloured X-ray.
