One way to ruin Christmas is to run x-rays an all the presents to find out what's inside without even opening them like the Hugh Turvey Xograms.

Using multiple exposure and a few other unconventional photography techniques, the Hugh Turvey Xograms are a colorful reproduction of the present and the secrets it contains inside. These scans are reminiscent of images that pop up when passing through the security check scanners at the airport, though admittedly more detailed and more welcoming.

While the gift itself is spoiled for receivers, the artist may be able to use his new method to help gift receivers and last minute shoppers find out what gifts their loved ones got them so they can shop accordingly budget and thought-wise.
