‘Nude’ by Shinichi Maruyama.

This series of images looks like long exposure dance photography. But do not be fooled, each images contain ten thousand images stitched together, his camera manages to record two thousand frames a second.

“I tried to capture the beauty of both the human body’s figure and its motion.
The figure in the image, which is formed into something similar to a sculpture, is created by combining 10,000 individual photographs of a dancer. 
By putting together uninterrupted individual moments, the resulting image as a whole will appear to be something different from what actually exists.
With regard to these two viewpoints, a connection can be made to a human being’s perception of presence in life.”

His images are a completely stunning, recording movement and the body in it’s fluidity.

  1. I am completely in awe of this photography (and your blog). There are so many great ways dance can be captured with photography that I have never really seen before. I will definitely be reblogging.

  2. Reblogged this on Dance Pundit and commented:
    Look at these amazing photos that capture the fluidity and motion of dance. Created by combining 10,000 individual frames of a dancer moving, you can see an entire sequence or combination in just one image. I wouldn’t mind having these pictures framed and hanging on my wall.
