X-ray photography: hidden beauty inside

Bryan Whitney's X-ray artwork reveals the inner beauty of flowers and everyday objects.  The images are made with an x-ray machine and, amazingly, no camera is involved in capturing these pictures. The X-ray beam penetrates the object, creating an image of its inner structure on a sheet of film or a digital plate. This ethereal black-and-white image is then digitally adjusted and in some cases, colored.
