These stunning pictures are a compilation of over 10,000 images, shot in a matter of seconds. Muruyama’s most recent project, NUDE, is this process applied to dance moves. We should all agree the results are somewhat beautiful…

Here’s some words taken from Maruyama’s website…

“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.”

“I know the advancement of technology has allowed me to create these new images that would have been impossible for others in the past. The scientist/photographer Étienne-Jules Marey, who contributed a lot to many artists more than 100 years ago, used a camera that shot 12 images per second. But because of the technology we have today, I was able to use a camera that let me take about 2,000 images per second.”
