For this week I decided to stray from my capstone topic and explore photography in a different way. I stumbled upon photography Nick Veasey's website on the work he does. I thought it was really interesting to see that his work consists of x-ray photography. This is something that most of us think we need to have done to see if we have broken a bone or not. Not for Nick, instead he sees it as an art form and something beautiful that takes away all the layers of superficial appearance in everyday objects and shows what is underneath.
I feel like Nick’s work goes back to Ben Van Dyke’s saying of originality and how it equals failure. While this definitely is originality and a form of art that I have never seen before, I feel like it is something that catches my eye and makes me look at things in the world in a totally different way than I had before. Yes, this work is original but I still feel like we can relate to it because Nick uses everyday objects that we see and turns them into art and by giving them an interesting look that is x-ray photography.
