Hold me closer, blurry dancer

A new series of photographs from Shinichi Maruyama shows the nude human form in motion. (Totally SFW.)

Shinichi Maruyama Nude

According to Petapixel, these are not long exposure shots (like these).

Although the photographs look like long-exposure shots, they’re actually composite images created by combining ten thousand individual photographs of each dancer. The result is a look in which each model’s body is (mostly) lost within the blur of its movement.

You may remember Maruyama from his hand-thrown water sculptures.
