I really enjoy the Cinemagraphs by Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg. At a first glance you might not even be aware of that something in the picture is moving, while everything else stands still. Though their pictures aim to capture the most delicate parts of life, fleeting moments of time, the beat of a city or the breath of a human. In their Cinemagraphs they come alive and live forever whereas a photo is frozen and a video is a linear description of time and can only be engaged through the act of pressing play. A picture says a thousand words but the Cinemagraph take you there.
