Japanese photographer Shinichi Maruyama has an interesting series of photos simply titled, “Nude.” Each image shows an abstract flesh-colored shape that’s created by a nude subject dancing in front of the camera. Although the photographs look like long-exposure shots, they’re actually composite images created by combining ten thousand individual photographs of each dancer. The result is a look in which each model’s body is (mostly) lost within the blur of its movement.
Stockholm-based photographer Christian Åslund has created a series of photos that pays tribute to classic 2D platform games. Called ‘Honkey Kong’, Åslund shot these photos while in Hong Kong, as part of an advertising campaign for shoe brand Jim Rickey. According to Åslund, the goal of the project was to do a “tribute to classic 2D platform games and integrate the person with the street scenes”.
