catch of the day: cinemagraphs

Graphic designer by day, photographer by freelance - it goes without saying that my sister knows a thing or two about aesthetics.  But she's really outdone herself with this new find. Cinemagraphs, the creation of graphic artist Kevin Berg and artist Jamie Beck, crank up the quirk and the romance of a photo's "moment in time".  Still images come to life with a surreal quality that echoes the magical realism of cinematographer Bruno Delbonnel (Amélie).  The art thus becomes two-fold: not only framing a gorgeous initial photograph, but also selecting the details that are highlighted in motion.

The results are truly awe-inspiring - as breathtaking as they are innovative.  So don't be surprised if flatscreen cinemagraphs become the picture frames of the future.
