It’s not exactly high praise to like a photographer for his work with stills. But Japan-bred, New York-based Shinichi Maruyama brings so-real-you-can-touch-it movement to his work. Already a favorite feature on this site for his work with Isaora a few years back, Shinichi’s latest series takes a single shot into a whole other realm of complexity, layering 10,000 individual photographs into one single piece.
