Hold me closer, blurry dancerNov 27 2012

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

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.

Shinchi Maruyama throws water from his hands or from glasses and catches the temporary sculptures they make with his camera.

The Morning News has an interview with Maruyama and a photo gallery of his work; this one is really cool.
