Shinichi Maruyama: Gardens


Japanese New Yorker Shinichi Maruyama’s Gardens series uses high-speed photography to capture paint in motion with stunning results.

Displayed at New York’s Bruce Silverstein Gallery in March 2011 to critical acclaim, Maruyama’s work is inspired by Zen gardens, and aims to encapsulate a universe void of negative thoughts or worries. His technique includes the use of strobe lighting when photographing the paints, allowing the gloss colours to appear frozen in time.

Although Maruyama’s recent exhibition has now closed, the full collection of images can be viewed on his website.
