X-Ray portraits of couples by Ayako Kanda and Mayuka Hayashi

Well, isn’t this romantic. A bit on the haunting side, but romantic nonetheless. These are photos of different couples as seen through a CT scan and an X-Ray machine. Artists Ayako Kanda and Mayuka Hayashi from Musashino Art University, have created a series that depicts human intimacy without warmth.

To elaborate, the bodies appear cold and lifeless, especially without warm and soft skin to cover the skeletons. But a closer look will still tell you that there is intimacy through gesture and body language.

The two students explain: ‘X-ray images usually show the finite nature of our bodies composed only of matter. But these couples’ portraits reveal a pulse that isn’t normally seen’.
