Hugh Turvey is an artist with an international reputation. His Xogram work is held in public and private collections throughout the world. Bridging the gap between art and science, graphic design and pure photography, it has been utilised in a myriad of applications, including, commercially, for marketing and advertising, in TV and film and by architects and interior designers.
Along with developing a body of work for the Science Photo Library, Hugh Turvey has collaborated on an ebook and iPad app called ‘X is for X-ray’ launched at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago. His Xogram work has also been widely featured in newspaper articles and magazines around the world.
Among his commercial projects, he has made six award-winning TV adverts, using ground breaking Motion X-Ray. For the past three years he has been working with Waitrose UK on celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal’s ranges and has had images commissioned by L’Oreal, Paris.
Hugh’s Xogram work has starred in 2011 French feature film Et Soudain, Tout Le Monde Me Manque and is on permanent display in Sir Isaac’s Loft at the Franklin Institute Science Museum, Philadelphia. Most recently, his Flora X-ray photographs were selected as a key motif to run throughout the newly refurbished Maslow Hotel in Johannesburg.
Looking to the future, Hugh is a pioneering creative practitioner for better healthcare environments. He has worked on large-scale art installation projects in hospitals in Germany, UK and USA and his Wellcome Trust sponsored inr-i project has been touring hospitals in the UK since 2011. He is currently part of a ‘communicative’ art research team at University College Hospital, London that is creatively thinking about ways to improve patient experience.
