Author Albert Koetsier reveals his passion and talent in his publication, “Beyond Light: The X-Ray Photography of Nature” (published by Xlibris). This book contains stunning images made by using x-rays (the x-rays for finding broken bones).

It is known to everybody that one needs light to be able to see things. But is that really true? The doctor “sees” the unborn baby by using ultrasound. And in a slightly different way, so does the bat. The air traffic controller “sees” the oncoming plane by using radar. Soldiers use heat wave to “see” the hidden enemy. Then of course, the artist “sees” by using his imagination. And there are more examples: the scanning microscope uses electrons to “see” very small animals, etc. Author Albert Koetsier concludes that seeing with light is just one way of perceiving the world. In this book, he lets readers see the world in another “light.”

“Beyond Light” takes readers on a unique experience that will let them discover the ever-changing world of art and the beauty of nature through x-ray photography.

About the Author
Born in The Netherlands, Albert Koetsier became fascinated with the concept of photography at the age of 10 when he built his first homemade camera out of an old matchbox and a pair of magnifying glasses. While working at Phillips and Siemens as an x-ray professional, he continued his passion for black and white photography on the weekends while living in The Netherlands, France and eventually settling in California with his wife and three children. This eventually prompted him to combine the two specialties creating some of the most amazing x-ray photographs using plants, flowers, shells and other inanimate objects. After leaving Siemens, he pursued his career as an artist traveling all across America and selling his work at various art shows. Today he and his wife Anne live in Lake Elsinore, California where he splits his time enjoying photography and his grandchildren.
