Dog Waiting

When Brooklyn-based photographer David Arky is not shooting conceptual still life, he turns his attention to x-ray photography. Here he captures an inside look at man’s best friend patiently awaiting his owner’s arrival. Of the x-ray process, Arky tells us: “Making x-ray images differs from conventional photography in the sense that the x-ray camera is actually the light source. 100,000 volts of electricity excite the x-ray tube as wavelengths pass through the object and its image is recorded on a sheet of film that lies beneath it. Objects are captured life size on the 14 x 17 inch sheets of film. When an object is larger than that, it has to be shot on multiple sheets and combined in retouching.” Based on his description of the process, Arky confirms that Dog Waiting was captured on multiple sheets of film.
