The Telegraph has a gallery of x-rays taken by photographer Hugh Turvey.

Hugh, 39, has been fascinated since childhood with getting underneath the surface of things. He said: “I’m driven by my curiosity. It’s about discovering the world around us. As a kid I would take things apart to see what was inside and how they worked. I have an insane curiosity for how things work. X-ray gives me a way to get that insight and turn it into art.”

The stargazer lilies at slide 11 are gorgeous.

UPDATE:  The Telegraph site has been intermittently broken.  Here are the photos at OddStuffMagazine.
