Nick Veasey was born in Kent, United Kingdom in 1962. His work questions the way we look at what surrounds us, he says that 'the X-Ray is a honest process, it shows things for what they are, what they are made of. (…) It balances against all that glossy, superficial "bollocks". I'm real and straight forward, and so is my work." Rather than creating images that spark one's desire to be someone else, it highlights the internal structure from which appearances originate. No matter the shape, the color, the texture, our everyday lives are made of molecules and we are all on an even footing.
Awarded 'Photographer of the year' by I.P.A. in 2008, his X-Rays can be admired in many international collections, both private and public (Victoria & Albert Museum of London (V&A), the Pushkin Museum in Moscow, and even the Contemporary Art Museum of Taipei.
