Human Cameras.

My brother was just telling me about this slightly absurd, crazy idea. This is Josh Lake and Luke Evans’ final major (BA photography at Kingston). They decided to play with photography as a concept and did a human body experiment. They each swallowed 35mm pieces of film and allowed their bodies to digest the squares, they then excreted the film in the dark, used fixer on the film and scanned them into the computer using an electron microscope. They came out with three prints (above) of what both their bodies produced, the images are insanely clear and detailed, and just so lovely (if they can be described as lovely?) Anyway, I’m not sure i’ll be doing anything similar any time soon, but a very cool idea.
