A physicist has harnessed the power of X-rays to create a stunning series of artworks which reveal animals and plants in an incredible new light.

Arie van’t Riet, 66, from Bathmen in the Netherlands, began X-raying flowers as a means to teach radiographers and physicians how the machine worked.

Colour is added once the picture is developed and scanned into a computer.

Mr van’t Riet is exposed to radiation every time he creates a new picture – but insists it is not a strong enough dose to be harmful.

Since creating his first piece in 2009, Mr van’t Riet’s work has proved a huge success at art fairs and exhibitions.

He added: ‘I want my work to underline the incredible beauty of nature and I hope these pictures will increase people’s appreciation for nature.’
