The Glory of Life in X-ray: a stunning series of X-ray images by medical specialist and artist Arie van ’t Riet explores the inner workings of animals and plants

Arie van ’t Riet has a unique view of life on earth. As a medical physicist based in the Netherlands, van ’t Riet teaches radiographers about radiation physics and safety. As part of his teaching program, van ’t Riet searched for an example to demonstrate and visualise the influence of x-ray energy on the contrast of an x-ray image. The higher the x-ray energy, the lower the contrast. “I arrived at flowers. After some years I started to edit and partly colour these x-ray images. And I added animals,” he says. van ’t Riet now produces a series of x-ray artworks demonstrating the inner beauty of life. 

Each image is produced at his home, where he has an x-ray machine under licence. All the animals imaged were already dead. “It’s not justified to expose living animals to the risk of x-rays,” he says. His work has now given him a new perspective on nature” (read more).

My first Young Adult book cover has officially been revealed for Simon & Schuster! Jessica Lawson’s book was so much fun to read- it’s like Clue meets Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The whole time I was reminded of A Series of Unfortunate Events and A Little Princess, which are two of my favorite childhood stories/series!! This was a blast to work on and I think book and story illustrating is my greatest passion. 
Many thanks to my art director Lucy for making this project a lot of fun. Can’t wait to share the interiors!
