japanese photographer shinichi maruyama is well known for his colliding liquid photography – immortalizing moments split seconds before they are lost to gravity. in his latest body of work, ‘nude’, maruyama continues his exploration of movement through photography – re-envisioning the language of traditional nude artwork and combining this with a reference to time.

the abstract striding limbs create almost painterly strokes across a hidden canvas –  a sweep of flesh filling space. the conceptual artistic interrogation reminds one of the beauty of the human body, not through form, but through the ethereal capacity of human motion – reminding one of the power of dance, theatre and gesture.

  • The movement reminds me of the futurists. Really amazing images!

  • Absolutely stunning- it turns a static art form into something else- the sense of movement that tranforms into an almost sculptural quality, which I realize is also static, but this work somehow reflects on movement for me in an ethereal way
