Chronophotography revisited

I just stumbled upon these photos by (Catalan ?) photographer Xavi Bou, thanks to an article in The Guardian. He revisited what his predecessors Etienne-Jules Marey and Eadweard Muybridge first did in the late 19th century when they invented chronophotography, but his goal was to “move away from [their] scientific approach”, by portraying the scene in a non-invasive way. I think the result is beautiful.
