X-ray artist Hugh Turvey has found the perfect way to sneak a peek at presents without having to rewrap them with his series of X-rays of Christmas presents. The images, which he calls Xograms, are made by exposing each object to photons for up to a minute in an x-ray machine. Speaking about the project Hugh says, “I have been working with x-ray for over 20 years and never get tired of seeing things I shouldn’t.

I love using film. The hands on approach and the manipulation of technique: overexposure, multiple exposure, chemical processing, filtering, rigs, mechanics, physics, happy accidents, trial and error and hand colouring. I do not work exclusively with one set of x-ray equipment rather I tailor the equipment to requirement: for example to capture a small insect of low density is very different to that of capturing the high densities of a sports motorbike. Simply put, the only difference between my x-ray images and the photograms produced by the early photographic pioneers is the frequency of the ‘light’ used to expose the ‘paper’.
