These photographs are mind-blowing. Forget photoshop, these photos are untouched by sneaky liquify hands and are pristine. Jay Mark Johnson uses a slit camera that emphasizes time over space, such that things that are still blend into lines, while things in motion are registered in the camera moment by moment. 

Thus the width of an object corresponds to the rate of movement, not to distance or size. This is trippy, art and photography at a whole new level!
