Shinichi Maruyama’s ‘Nude’ photo series is a study of movement, the capture of motion with high speed photography. Maruyama is well known for his studies of liquid in motion and in this series he takes the nude and introduces the passage of time.

These images are not so much about the body rather it is about the capacity to move, to create beautiful forms through movement. It is about dance and our capacity for movement through space.

Thank to Joe Koufman for today’s fodder.
