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.

We are born into bodies that are fluid and free...Rhythm, breath, music and movement become tools of seeing and then freeing the habits that hold us back. When we move our bodies then our hearts begin to open, when the body and the heart taste freedom the mind won't be far behind. ~Gabrielle Roth

Étienne-Jules Marey "Like his contemporary Eadweard Muybridge, Marey, a physiologist, was interested in the science of human movement. By 1882, he had developed a single camera method that he called chronophotography, which allowed him to make images of human and animal movement. His camera was the forerunner of the motion picture camera. Marey’s chronophotographs were some of the first images to illustrate the exact process of body movement.”

Artist unknown I like how the use of geometric shapes add to the shape of her body and gives more of a sense of movement #movement #art #photography

Body cinema: Body, Motion and Liquids in the Eyes of Bart Hess | The use of different materials with dance movements combined then with the chemistry of nature is something that fascinates me a lot in artworkz by Bart Hess, as well as when he works in duo with Lucy McRae, under the name LucyandBart.

I tried this with the preschool group using the full-body movements and they LOVED it! We always have to do it more than once.▶ Snowflakes: Winter Action Song for Kids - YouTube
