At a glance, artist Jason Shulman's blurred images appear to be random pieces of abstract art, but they are actually much more than meets the eye.

Based in London, Jason Shulman uses long-exposure photography to depict the themes of different, famous movies. The result is a set of blurred images that show common themes of the films Shulman is inspired by.

The photographs are still images, sourced from various movies like 'Citizen Kane,' 'Duel,' 'Fantasia,' 'Guided Muscle' and even Disney classic 'Sleeping Beauty.' When examining the photos and comparing them to the actual movies, it is clear that these blurred images actually do represent the general ambiance of the film titles they are sourced from -- despite of their abstract quality.
