Will x-ray pictures ever not be fascinating? Steve Miller takes familiar high-fashion items and subjects them to this trusted mode of invasive scrutiny, revealing some uncommon contents that make curious and aesthetic arrangements. These images, part of a series called Fashion Animals that also looks through the bodies of Brazilian creatures therefore comparing them to the exotic contrivance of a handbag or shoes, asks abstract questions about the superficiality of manufactured objects in graphically iconic fashion (no pun intended).
