Split-Second Snapshots

In his “Kusho” series, Nagano, Japan native Shinichi Maruyama focuses his macro lens on black ink and water in motion.

As Feature Shoot’s Alison Zavos explains:
The split-second timing necessary to photograph these pictures is made possible by recent advances in strobe light technology, allowing the artist to capture phenomena in most instances at 7,500th of a second, and, in the few close-up images of droplets, at an astonishing 20,000th of a second.

Split-second indeed – remarkably, Maruyama’s captures show us that otherwise imperceptible point when black and white merge into gray.
