József Hajdú's X-Ray Record Photographs

This beautiful image is a photograph of a Bone record made by József Hajdú who worked in the postal museum in Budapest. It is one of several contact prints and enlargements from polaroids he made of various x-ray records found in the archives of Hungarian Radio.  His haunting images elevated the appearance of the low quality records to the level of high quality art.

The age and provenance of the records themselves imply that the technique of recording onto used X-Rays may have originally been invented in Hungary as an officially sanctioned response to a general shortage of material needed for the purpose.
