Hugh Turvey is a British artist and photographer who uses x-ray technology to create what he calls Xograms, a fusion of visible light and x-ray imagery.



My x-ray passion was ignited after a designer friend asked for a broken bone image for an album cover.

One of my personal favorite images is titled “Femme Fatale”. It is a colored x-ray image of a woman’s foot in a stiletto shoe. It is one of my first images, transparent, self-explanatory and has become an iconic image inadvertently, possibly made more unique by radiation law amendments.

It also happens to be my wife and a fitting portrait of my sole mate…pun intended.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
