Huge Turvey is a British photographer who is popular for his innovative experiments with x-ray technology. His works include fusion of art and science, graphic design and pure photography. Turvey named his x-ray/shadow photography ‘Xograms’.
He studied photography in Lancashire and his passion towards x-ray photography started building up when his designer friend asked him to click a broken bone image for an album cover. Right after that he headed to a nearby hospital to meet the head of radiography. Turvey started working with x-rays in the late 1990’s.
In 2009, the British Institute of Radiology appointed Huge as a permanent artist. The Royal Photographic Society awarded him for his outstanding imaging innovation and its role in science and understanding in 2014.
