Garden Secrets: Radiological Plant Photography by Steven Meyers

Floral photographer, Steven Meyers spend the first 30 years of his career as a radiologist in the diagnostic medical setting. Meyers began experimenting with floral radiography, a relatively unexplored art form, nearly 30 years ago and despite the challenges of finding the right equipment to record the delicate flower details and having no lens to compose with, he has perfected the compositions of skeletal outlines and lacy petals, resulting in elegant and aesthetically pleasing images he calls “Garden Secrets”. By using x-rays instead of light, Meyers reveals an unusual “inner-vision”, showing the natural textures, details, and shadows that would otherwise not be seen. Variations in lighting and texture add to the mystery of the final photographs, which include negatives, positives, and solarized prints.
