In 1930 Dr. Dain Tasker, an amateur photographer and successful radiologist practicing in Southern California, turned his attention to the exposure of flowers under the penetrating and invisible glare of X-Rays. Gaining an initial audience in several photography magazines of the era, Dr. Tasker has remained obscure and underappreciated until now. With the publication of this exquisitely designed monograph, immaculately printed by the renowned Stinehour Press, these delicate and translucent images can once again be enjoyed and admired.
