Nudes per second.

In 1882. it was possible to record 12 consecutive images of the moving object per second and those frames would be stored on the same photo . The great mind behind this invention which I guess we can call a camera, even though it was gun-shaped, was √Čtienne-Jules Marey. He is considered to be one of the pioneers of photography and cinema. Marey was actually a physiologist who developed an interest in photography as he realized it could be the useful tool in studying the movement of animals and humans.

In 2012. Shinichi Maruyama captured human motion with the camera which allowed him to take about 2.000 images per second. Advancement of technology in numbers: from 12 images in 1882. to 2.000 images per second in 2012. Impressive. As are the photographs from Maruyama's NUDE series:

The NUDE series consists of naked human bodies performing choreographed dance. Maruyama collaborated with the choreographer Jessica Lang who helped in creating the perfect dance moves. Each shot was created by layering 10.000 individual photographs of the dancers into one piece which gives the photos the incredible creamy substance effect.
