Invisible Light is a photo series, compiled by Australian photographer Brendan Fitzpatrick, that consists of X-ray images of various objects including flowers, toys and more. The Sydney-based photographer used chest x-ray and mammogram machines to create eye-catching and intriguing images that reveal the complicated innards of seemingly simply objects.

Invisible Light seeks to explore the potential that radiography -- associated primarily with medicine and healthcare -- could have in the art world.

Fitzpatrick used three kinds of subjects -- flowers, toys and creatures. He used inexpensive toys bought in discount stores and toy shops, flowers and a variety of creatures including seahorses, crab and fish. He utilized a standard X-ray machine to make x-ray images of the objects, before processing the pictures to add color and highlight interesting inner structures.
