My name is Aleks Reba and I'm a creative director from Germany. On my free time, I used to create different kinds of art (illustrations, photography). I also combined different techniques.
But after taking a lot of flower macros, I decided I wanted to take a deeper look into this world. I thought that using x-rays would be an good idea. Almost all x-ray images of flowers that I found where black&white or slightly coloured. So i wanted to try it on my own.
First problem was finding an x-ray equipment that I could use. After searching and asking a lot of institutions I found a local medical facility which agreed to help me out by operating the technical stuff (because only medical facilities and trained staff are allowed to use this kind of x-ray equipment).
After several times of trial and error, I got some handy results. The raw images were created by using digital mammography.
With this technology, it was possible to see through all parts of flowers and plants. With the use of digital post-processing, I turned the black&white into colourful images.
