Open your eyes wide
The .gif is not limited to animations by Britney Spears or SpongeBob. Some photographers have appropriated the format and the result is astonishing.
They are called Julien Douvier, Jamie Beck or Kevin Burg and, to the delight of internet users, create “cinemagraphs”, a modern and refined version of animated .gif. A priori still photos come to life imperceptibly when you look at them carefully.
Daily moments, change of light … They capture with poetry the details of everyday life. Open your eyes wide and contemplate these extraordinary .gifs.
