This work uses x-rays to explore the micro-evolution of cameras and is a metaphor about the limits of evolution. Form and media may have changed, but the camera is still a camera: a tool to create images by capturing light. This project is an homage to the cameras I have owned, used, or handled. The tools of the trade, having faithfully imaged for decades, have themselves been imaged. The resulting images align with an inner desire to probe those unseen spaces and realms I sense exist, but do not observe with my eyes.
