With an Essay by René Harather
Werner Schuster was a doctor long before he became an artist—but it was a childhood fascination with photography that drove him to study radiology in the first place, so it’s only fitting that he should now be one of the most versatile and interesting artists working with x-ray photography today. This volume presents full-color reproductions of Schuster’s photographs along with those of other photographers, from the pioneering x-ray creators of 1895 to present-day artists working in the medium. An essay by René Harather tells the history of x-ray photography and highlights the most important developments and proponents of the genre since its discovery. The second part of the book turns to Schuster’s work, showing how he has expanded the boundaries of the medium and made creative use of the interplay between traditional and x-ray photography.

A fascinating look at a stunning marriage of art and science, X-Ray is the first comprehensive representation of the history of x-ray photography.
