Nike in Abstract

View all 14 Photos

Joost van Brug takes a fresh look at 24 Nike sneakers in this abstract collection of photography. The top-view, long-exposure pictures capture Nike in a new light, as the shoes are spun at a high speed and rendered a colorful blur. The sneakers are seemingly transformed into bright discs or pieces of high art at the same time that they are shown doing what they are designed to do: movely quickly and pretty cool.
