Steven N. Meyers Canvas Art
Steven Meyers is a native of Washington state and currently works full time as a radiology tech doing Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). Even though he works in the radiology field, he did not have access to the type of equipment to make quality floral radiographs until he purchased his own specimen radiography unit.
According to Steven - Visible light is just a small part of the electromagnetic spectrum, and falls between x-rays and infrared. My x-ray images are a collection of negatives, positives, and solarized images – solarized being partly negative and partly positive at the same time. Black and white images have been a part of my daily life since 1971. In my 35+ years as a radiology technologist, I have experimented with this art form many times.
Having been involved with traditional landscape photography for many years, the challenges of this alternative technique were many. Although most of my photography work was in color, I've always loved the impact of a nice black and white landscape print. I've attempted to create radiographic still- life compositions and to produce images that are quite different from the work of other floral radiographers before me.
