RX.

radiography
curix RP1 agfa-gevaert
me and jacopo found out about an abandoned psychiatric hospital building that apparently was possible to enter and visit: we decided to drive there yesterday. the hospital was formed by many buildings and getting into it wasn't that easy, but we came back home with a very special souvenir: a full packet of x-rays exams taken to a few patients in 1979. we spent the rest of the afternoon in the darkroom printing the RX's and the result is quite impressive.
watch the whole serie here!

© I am glad I worked on something that time would have cancelled otherwise. I hope you will appreciate RX serie as much as I do.

  4. I am super glad you liked the pictures Daniel, the packaging was super wet and we had to dry it and clean it, today I've spent a couple of hours restoring it and now all the xrays are back into the original pack without the risk of being damaged (;
    the pack was super incredibly well conserved even if the place was soaking wet and cold.
    we've found also a 35mm film capturing an xray angiography *___*

  7. no :( I wish I knew emma, but the exams didn't come with a written analysis, just the images. I guess they were trying to find out what was wrong about them.
