Cinemagraph: Bringing pictures to life

I relish in the moments when I stumble across something that excites me, intrigues my curiosity and provokes further exploration, chancing upon one great site to another great artist! Such is the wonderful world wide web I call my playground.

Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg, the artists behind Cinemagraph, creates images that contains within itself a living moment that allows a glimpse of time to be experienced and preserved endlessly. They bring into being traditional photographs and combine living moments into the images through the isolated animation of multiple frames. To quote supermodel Coco Rocha “it’s more than a photo but not quite a video”.

Watch NYC come to life! Take a glimpse into timeless moments captured from the streets, subways, parks and scenes from New York Fashion show, and feel absolutely enchanted, over and over again.

On a separate note, if you have an iphone and aspire to create your own cinemagraphs, check out “Kinotopic”, a free app that allows you to make a simplified gif file of your videos . You can check out my humble and pale-in-comparison experiments at
