Gorgeous Minimalist Flower X-Rays From The 1930s

Flower X-Rays: In the 1930s, Dain L. Tasker 1872 – 1964, chief radiologist at Los Angeles’ Wilshire Hospital, investigated the anatomy of plants with an X-ray machine. His minamalist flower X-Rays are extraordinary. Color and context and reduced to the simple essence.

Photographer Will Connell, a teacher at Pasadena’s Art Center College of Design, helped Tasker print his pictures and show his unusual work in photography exhibitions. Tasker’s work appeared in U.S. Camera (October 1939) and Popular Photography (March 1942). And then, well, not much more is known of him.
