The index X-ray came from a person with an industrial lung disease. This is a disease of the interstitium of the lung, the fine cobwebby tissue that lies between the air-spaces of the lung. The interstitium is subject to a whole variety of conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis which can also affect the lung, also a variety of industrial diseases such as farmers lung and pneumoconiosis. This was a lady with an autoimmune disease leading to restrictive fibrotic changes.
The X-ray has been overlaid with a dewy cobweb that I photographed early this very morning with the sun on it. There is little else to modify the image apart from a layer of coloured glass. I feel that it has an impression of entanglement, the constricting effect of the web tying the lung in its knots.
This is the first time I have done a square image, I suppose it is cheating a little because the bars supporting the cobweb frame the image changing it from a square to a rectangle.
