Born in 1971 - United Kingdom
Hugh Turvey trained as a designer / art director but on discovering photography he retrained under iconic photographer Gered Mankowitz. During 1996/1997 he started experimenting with x-ray/shadow photography after being asked to create an alternative ‘revealing’ image for an album cover. With the encouragement of the Science Photo Library Hugh Turvey went on to produce an extensive series of coloured x-rays of everyday objects, which were first published on the 4 April 1999 in The Observer Magazine, Life, UK. In the same year Credit Suisse discovered his x-ray vision and commissioned 6 ground breaking ‘motion x-ray’ European TV commercials.
"The only difference between my x-ray images and the photograms produced by the early photographic pioneers is the frequency of the ‘light’ used to expose the ‘paper’. I have created (unlike the ‘Roentgenogram’ which is pertaining to the originators name) a more generic term ‘Xogram‘ to define my x-ray images within the context of my photographic background and the cross over of my visible light and x-ray images. I have also created the term ‘Xografia ‘ to define the act of producing xograms." Hugh Turvey
