Nudes in Motion - Maruyama

Shinichi Maruyama, a New York based photographic artist has a new project, long exposure photos of nude dancers (no nudity on display). http://www.shinichimaruyama.com/

Many of the pictures have a wonderful aiki quality imo and reminded me of some of the photos in "It's a lot like dancing". You cannot link directly to the pictures, it appears. 'Gardens' on the same link is also spectacular but not in the same way.

Re: Nudes in Motion - Maruyama

Beautiful! I also really liked the water sculptures! I love the fluidity in his work! Reminds me a little of what I was exposed to while working for a glass blower.
Thank you!

Re: Nudes in Motion - Maruyama

Doesn't it make you want to do your own shapes?
