Rockstar Photographers: Jamie Beck & Kevin Burg’s Cinemagraphs

Leave a comment

Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg have put a sophisticated twist on the traditional animated GIF. They have coined and copyrighted the term “Cinemagraph” which is essentially a still photograph with moving elements. Their images are more than a photo, but not quite a video. Ms. Beck explains that “An animated GIF is usually a sequence of stills pulled from video, animated art, or other imagery that is repurposed into a GIF. What we do is different because it’s a traditional still photograph with a moment living within it.”
