Layered Photos Create X-Ray Illusion

Think you're looking at ballpoint pen drawings? Not quite. Artist Max De Esteban has a brilliant new series of photographs entitled “Proposition One.” Esteban deconstructs the object he is going to shoot and, layer by layer, he photographs the inner workings. Then he reassembles the objects photographically. This process yields amazing results, giving us an x-ray feel. The photos also show the inner complexities and design that have gone into these classic pieces.

I was blown away by discovering how much stuff is actually inside something like an old movie projector or Polaroid camera. More photos can be found on the artists site which is listed below.
