Photography in Motion – The Creativity of Cinemagraphs
„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.
A Cinemagraph is an image that contains within itself a living moment that allows a glimpse of time to be experienced and preserved endlessly.“
