Kusho by Shinichi Maruyama

Kusho is the latest collection of prints by japanese photographer and artist Shinichi Maruyama. Kusho, the japanese word for writing in the sky’ features ten large-scale photographs that represent the midair interplay of black india ink and water. Maruyama captures-two liquids colliding the millisecond before they merge into gray allowing the viewer to see in extraordinary detail chemical and physical processes invisible to the naked eye.  Capable of capturing this phenomenon at a 7,500th of a second, Maruyama takes full advantage of a recent advancement in strobe light technology.

You can order Maruyama’s book or collection of limited edition of the silver prints through his website.
