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.
“I tried to capture the beauty of both the human body’s figure and its motion,” he explains, forming the figure in the image as one would a sculpture. “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.”
