Intimate X-Ray Couple Portraits
What would normally be intimate portrayals of couples holding each other close has been transformed into stark, almost eerie portraits by Japanese students and artists Ayako Kanda and Mayuka Hayashi. However there is an unspoken passion revealed in these x-ray portraits of couples that transcends any form of traditional imagery. The result is a series of ghostly white skeletons tangled in loving embraces.
Using an actual CT scan and x-ray machine, they photographed four couples revealing something more than what we would see in a doctor’s office. “X-ray images usually show the finite nature of our bodies composed only of matter,” say the duo. “But these couples portraits reveal a pulse that isn’t normally seen.”

- Never again do anything you don’t want to do.
I still think this applies.
