Safe for work and nude don't come together often, but when they do chances are there's something artsy going on.
In this instance the medium is long exposure photography, where the shutter is left open for an extended period of time which results in nude figures being transformed into ghostly forms.
These are the spellbinding images Shinichi Maruyama creates by taking time and adding movement, and the subjects are just as important to the final look of each piece as Shinichi's eye.
Here's what Shinichi has to say about his 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.
