Xray-like photographs of obsolete technology

With this new work, Barcelona-based photographer Max Esteban turns his camera toward recent cutting-edge technology—utilized in the creation and communication of art—that is now considered obsolete.

Through a time-consuming process, he disassembles apparatus such as film projectors, 35mm film cameras, VHS tape players and record players. Piece-by-piece, the parts are painted white, the machines are then reassembled and photographed at different stages of being re-built. The photographed layers are themselves assembled into a single image, resulting in x-ray-like photographs that are reminiscent of architectural cyanotypes.
