Nick Veasey was born in Kent (UK) in 1962.
Nick?s work with radiographic imaging equipment takes the x-ray to another level. Everyday objects are transformed from the banal to the beguiling and the layers and make-up of natural items are shown in fantastic detail. In today?s world that is obsessed with ?image?, superficiality and artifice, Veasey counters such insubstantial diversions by delving inside and discovering what things are really made of. Metaphors for the images are many and varied. Their context is very relevant in today?s society with the prevalence of surveillance and the use of x-ray technology for security.
Awarded 'Photographer of the year' by I.P.A. in 2008, his X-Rays can be admired in many international collections, both private and public (Victoria & Albert Museum of London (V&A), the Pushkin Museum in Moscow, and even the Contemporary Art Museum of Taipei.
