X-Ray Film

Fine art photography using large format sheet X-ray film in antique cameras, vintage cameras and DIY cameras.

Using X-ray film instead of the glass plates that would have been used originally in the cameras from c1900 opens up interesting image making possibilities that I am enjoying exploring.


X-ray film is orthochromatic, like photographic paper, not sensitive to red/orange light.  This means it renders subjects with a quite different look and feel. Add to that the dramatically greater resolution film offers over the most expensive digital camera sensors I can make images that stand out from much of what we are given to view today. 

I like to produce images which draw the viewer in and the techniques and processes I explore are used to achieve that effect.
