By using x-rays instead of light, an unusual inner vision is revealed, and Nature shows us textures, details, and shadows that would otherwise not be seen. Visible light is just a small part of the electromagnetic spectrum, and falls between x-rays and infrared. My x-ray images are a collection of negatives, positives, and solarized images––solarized being partly negative and partly positive at the same time. Black and white images have been a part of my daily life since 1971. I have experimented with this art form over 25 years as a radiology technologist. Having been involved with traditional landscape photography for many years, the challenges of this alternative technique were many. I’ve attempted to create still life compositions that are quite different from the work of other floral radiographers.” Steven is a native of Washington state and currently works full time as a radiology tech doing Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). Even though he works in the radiology field, he did not have access to the type of equipment to make quality floral radiographs, so he purchased his own specimen radiography unit. It’s not unusual for him to create over 700 exposures in one year. “Floral radiography, even in its 60 year history, is, for the most part, unexplored.
