Animated gifs, while being considered the bane of certain one-time popular social networking sites, have long been criticized by the design community. Seen as mere throwbacks to a less mature stage in the life of the internet, and therefore written off by many in the field. However, a creative duo took these throwbacks in a completely artistic and inspired direction. Using high speed photography and animating masked sections, of the images, Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg have given rise to a new trend in the photography field, Cinemagraphs.

More than your basic animated image, these not-so still life captures have elements (some major, some minor) within the photograph that are set in motion. Taking the photograph into a interesting new realm, that has begun to catch on, and spread like wildfire. Below we take a look through some of the images from the gallery of the two innovative minds that begat this visually intriguing artform.


A Cinemagraph is an image that contains within itself a living moment that allows a glimpse of time to be experienced and preserved endlessly.“
