Cars Yeah with Mark Greene

Nick Veasey is a man with x-ray vision who lives in Kent in the United Kingdom. He creates art that shows what it is really like inside his subjects. Nick works with radiographic imaging equipment and takes photographic art to another level. His images are a classic example of the fusion between art and science and they take us on a journey into a world otherwise unseen. While he works with many different objects it is his work with automobiles, equipment, motorcycles and people that brings him to Cars Yeah. Creating art with radiation is complex and dangerous. You can find his work at fine art galleries around the world and in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
