Found: Nude Timelapse
Aren't these images incredible? It's been entirely way too long since I've shared some art with you, and these are just too beautiful to keep all to myself.
New York based photographer Shinichi Maruyama created these awe-inspiring images using nearly 10,000 photographs of a nude dancer in motion. Don't they look like paintings? I find myself getting lost in each image, following the elegant, flowing lines, trying to get a glimpse of the body buried in the movement. Here's what he had to say about this series...
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.
Here's a few of my favourites...
More of Shinichi's work can be found on his website.
P.S. More art finds here, here, and here.
