Luke Evans’ body with slide film inside

I’ve a few experimental photography projects in the pipeline, but this must go down as one of the oddest and original ones I’ve seen: two Kingston students Luke Evans & Josh Lake created human photograms by swallowing 35mm film, expelling it, and recording the results. For their final Uni project they “wanted to bring our insides out” they say. “So we ate 35mm photographic film slides and let our bodies do the rest. When they both ‘expelled’ it in the dark, fixed the silver and then scanned the pieces using an electron microscope in order to record the traces their bodies had left on the film’s surface. As you can see the results are quite outstanding.
