Japanese photographer Shinichi Maruyama's Nude is a series that explores movement through static photography. All taken from the same perspective, the images capture a nude model dancing to stunning effect, with broad sweeps and curves that seem more akin to Arizona's rock formations than a human form.

Although the images have the appearance of long-exposure shots, they're actually composite images created by combining thousands of individual photos together. You can find more of the photographer's work on his personal site, or full-sized images from the Nude series over at Designboom.
