(American, b. 1955)

The Canon AE-1 was the first single lens reflex camera to incorporate a microprocessor.
By shooting the camera with a linear accelerator x-ray machine, Kent Krugh grants us access to the insides of the camera, a place we usually know only through intellect and imagination. He processes the raw x-ray, which is white on black, through Photoshop to reverse its values. This diminishes the x-ray’s ghostly aspects and emphasizes instead a relationship to printed diagrams.
