After practicing veterinary medicine for decades, Allan Gill turned his medical X-ray equipment on flowers and plants. His glowing images depict both the internal and external structures of his subjects. As he explains, "images are captured in much the same way as with conventional photography, with the difference being instead of utilizing reflected light, I am able to utilize another part of the electromagnetic spectrum...." Gill's technique may seem simple but in fact is the result of years of experimenting with different kinds of X-ray equipment to find the right combination of conditions that would allow him to record the level of detail he desired.
Gill lives and works in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada. In addition to establishing a growing audience for his photography, Gill is also a veterinarian. His photographs have been exhibited in Canada and sold in the United States and have been featured in LensWork Magazine, Focus Magazine, American Art Collector, Color Magazine, 'digitalis photo' (Hungary), and Black and White Photography (Britain).
