Nick Veasey is selling his latest x-ray images on 20ltd.com. Nick's work utilizes x-ray technology - giving the viewer a rare glimpse "inside". His current and past works have included skulls, middle fingers, bulldozers, teddy bears, insects, and even, underwear. The images are unlike anything you've ever seen.

Implications - X-rays are traditionally only used in hospitals and medical facilities, but the increasing availability of X-ray technology -- and photo editing filters that mimic X-ray photography -- have allowed intrepid photographers to take our fascination with our interiors to new heights. By portraying the insides of items we wouldn't usually see in an X-ray, artists simultaneously subvert traditional ideas of health care and art.
