The Cinemagraph movement

Everyone knows the Gif, one of the most used formats on the Internet. Yet it is a format often described as has-been. To deregulate it, Jamie Beck, a great photographer, and Kevin Burg, an animation specialist, invented the Cinemagraph, a revisited Gif that is neither a photo nor a video and whose purpose is to illustrate a short story.

The term “photographic manipulations” is used to describe dreamlike collages in which seemingly incongruous images are mixed together. It is precisely their combination that tells the story: by using graphic editors to assemble various fragments of realistic photographs, the artist creates illusory worlds.
