X-Ray Photographs

Between Science and Art: X-Ray Photographs of Judith K. McMillan
September 24 - December 12, 2004

The work of photographer Judith McMillan takes the examination of plants to a new realm. Using an X-ray machine as her camera, McMillan photographs the internal structure of plants, revealing the beauty of the natural forms invisible to the human eye. After a period of experimentation using an X-ray museum at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, she began creating photo-grams on film. She uses specimens collected through the seasons, recording the transformation from bud to blossom. Occasionally insects wander into her work, such as bees and an enormous female walking stick. In a wonderful marriage of science and art, an unseen microcosm emerges from within the complexity of botanical forms.
