Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg animated gif

Riddle me this: when is a photograph not a photograph, and when is a video not a video?

Answer: when it’s a “cinemagraph” created by photographer Jamie Beck and her partner, motion graphics artist Kevin Burg.

Without getting too techy, their collaborative efforts create an “animated gif”…a moving still. Previously the realm of simple website animations, Beck and Burg are lifting the gif concept to create a new level of digital art.

If you can’t see the motion in the photo (above) you can try clicking on the picture. If you still can’t see it, check out Jamie Beck’s photo blog site [here]. The images are subtle, stylish and whimsical…as if a gentle breath of wind is floating over the image. Really lovely.
