Having been reminded last night of Shinichi Maruyama's photographs of the nude dancers, we just had to dedicate this weeks throwback to her. The dancers were shot using long exposure photography to create some very interesting (and beautiful, to boot) images. I hadn't seen dancers photographed this way before, and it was definitely a breath of fresh air. It's interesting to see how fluid and smooth the motions of the figures are, and how it translates into a two-dimensional medium.
