Albert Koetsier is a Dutch artist born in the Netherlands. Albert got in love with photography at the tender age of 8. He later developed his first homemade camera using matchbox, a pair of lenses, and other materials. At the age of 14, Albert was working in different jobs to help him purchase the materials he needed for his experiments. Later on, he created his own machine for developing photos. His love for photography was so strong that he started collecting cameras and parts from any source he could find. Albert mastered camera technology so much that after he graduated from a primary technical university in Hilversum, Netherlands, he secured a job as an x-ray technician. In 1969 while he was in a job assignment in Würtzberg, he saw x-ray images of plants printed on a calendar. He was so fascinated with it that he wanted to make at least some two for his room, provided it wasn't too expensive. Albert however moved to another place before taking such pictures.
Later on in 1982, he found an old x-ray machine while on a work mission in California. He repaired it and started making x-ray images of plants, birds, and anything he could come across. Although he liked the images, he didn’t see much in them until in 1991 when he made an x-ray of a lizard. He saw art in that image. A friend who later visited and saw the artwork was willing to buy the "lizard with the broken leg," as it came to be called. Albert continued making x-rays of different objects, later winning him several awards and appearing in several magazines. He’s practicing what's now famously known as x-rayography to date. He's married to Anne, with whom they work together on the paintings and framing of the creative works of art.
