I was a mammography technician at the Garden Grove Medical Center in CA. While taking photography classes at Cypress College, I was exposed to the idea of using radiography to photograph objects.
The idea further developed when I began work on a semester project involving radiographs of flowers, which required that I advance my skills at printing using color solarization. I wanted to demonstrate to patients the detail and quality that the mammography machine can obtain and several of my radiographs hang in mammography rooms at several Southern California Kaiser Permanente Medical Centers.
