PBS video segments on Skiagraphics

What you are seeing is X-ray art. These “shadow-pictures” were created by Dr. André Bruwer--a radiologist who practiced in Tucson, Arizona for over 30 years. They are called Skiagraphics.

By choosing natural objects that contain varied densities, Dr. Bruwer ensures that the X-ray images will contain an interesting array of shadows. The tulips reveal overlapping petals and dark pistals. The chambered nautilus has delicate gradations of gray with its tiny chambers on display. Images are seen in a whole new perspective.
We hope you enjoy the fascinating world of X-ray art from Skiagraphics ®.
