Synopsis

Werner Schuster was a doctor long before he became an artist but it was a childhood fascination with photography that drove him to study radiology in the first place, so it s only fitting that he should now be one of the most versatile and interesting artists working with x-ray photography today. This volume presents full-color reproductions of Schuster s photographs along with those of other photographers, from the pioneering x-ray creators of 1895 to present-day artists working in the medium. An essay by Rene Harather tells the history of x-ray photography and highlights the most important developments and proponents of the genre since its discovery. The second part of the book turns to Schuster s work, showing how he has expanded the boundaries of the medium and made creative use of the interplay between traditional and x-ray photography. A fascinating look at a stunning marriage of art and science, "X-Ray" is the first comprehensive representation of the history of x-ray photography."
