Living Images by Mike Pecci

After about two years in development, Mike Pecci just released his very own set of gifs he calls Living Images. “They are more than gifs,” he tells us, “they are high definition images that can fill your screen and high concept poses and actions the really make you stop and stare.”  Mike Pecci is an artist whose commitment to detail and process have proved to be the reason for his success. His ability to touch audiences through his films is a credit to his commitment to understanding humanity. The work has an emotional quality that can both frighten and pull you in, playing off the darkest chasms of the human condition.


Cinemagraphs by Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg

Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg
A Cinemagraph is an image that contains within itself a living moment that allows a glimpse of time to be experienced and preserved endlessly.Visual Graphics Artist Kevin Burg began experimenting with the .gif format in this style in 2009 but it wasn’t until he partnered with photographer Jamie Beck to cover NYFW that Cinemagraphs were born. Marrying original content photography with the desire to communicate more to the viewer birthed the cinemagraph process. Starting in-camera, the artists take a traditional photograph and combine a living moment into the image through the isolated animation of multiple frames. To quote supermodel Coco Rocha «it’s more than a photo but not quite a video».Beck and Burg named the process «Cinemagraphs» for their cinematic quality while maintaining at its soul the principles of traditional photography. Launched virally through social media platforms Twitter and Tumblr, both the style of imagery and terminology has become a class of its own. The creative duo are looking forward to exploring future display technologies for gallery settings as well as pushing this new art form and communication process as the best way to capture a moment in time or create a true living portrait in our digital age while embracing our need to communicate visually and share instantly.Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg reside in New York City we’ve already met them here and here, and here Marcel Meyer cinemagraphs and again Mike Pecci great art.
