In a series of jaw-dropping photographs that look like paintings, Japanese photographer Shinichi Maruyama has captured nude dancers in motion. Using a camera that allowed him to take 2,000 pictures a second, Maruyama explains the technique behind his latest series NUDE:

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.
