Romance and radiation do not go hand-in-hand. But, there is always the exception to the rule. For students Ayako Kanda and Mayuka Hayashi, that exception won them a Mitsubishi Junior Designer Award, and a gallery exhibition of their X-ray portraits of four couples in varying intimate poses. The images of skeletons embracing may appear morbid, but they also have a romantic side, speaking to the infinite nature of true love that can forever outlast the finite nature of the human body.
