‘radioportraits’ by xavier lucchesi
all images © the artist
french photographer xavier lucchesi has created the series ‘radio portraits’ or ‘interior landscape’ in which all of the images have been captured
with a medical scanner. in this way the artist sees, the ‘internal journey of self’. lucchesi first has the subject’s image captured in an advanced
x-ray machine either pictured by themselves or with a large or small object clutched to their figure. after the medical scan has been completed,
the image is enhanced by lucchesi digitally by the addition of color, highlighting of certain shapes or organs only visible to the human eye with
the utilization of this photographic technology.
in this view, the artist’s chosen perspective looks at the subject from the top of his body down towards his feet
the same figure is observed in three phases of scanning: the left image picturing the subject in the scanner with more detailed exterior perspective.
the top right visualizes the heat of the individual while the bottom right displays an internal perspective showing their organs.
