When Canadian director and photographer Ryan Enn Hughes won a fellowship to explore the structural elements of moving image, he decided to marry film and photography by capturing the frozen movements of dance.
With 48 cameras aligned in a circle, ballerinas and krump dancers were photographed in 360 degrees.
After a painstaking post-production process, the individual photographs were then assembled, like a flip book, to create a rotating peak moment of action frozen in 360 degrees, Hughes told the Huffington Post in an email.
Watch the two stunning films that animate and illuminate the dancers from a never seen before view. Next, you'll find a 'Behind The Scenes' video and photo gallery.
