Live photos made by Julien Duve
Cinemagraphy is a very spectacular live photo, which in 2011 became famous thanks to two people from New York: a photographer Jamie Beck and a designer Kevin Burg. The idea was simple: to show not a static picture, but an animated one. We can say that this is a new era in photography by creating an image that is not a video and not a picture. We want to show you the cinematographs created by the graphic designer from France named Julien Duve. You will see simple scenes from everyday life, and by seeing them you will feel that you are watching a movie.

According to the first creators of live images, Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg, they wanted to merge the world of photography and the world of cinema. And they really managed to do this. (Photo: Julien Douvier).
The creation of one live image usually takes two days, but if the moving element in the picture is a person it can take even a week. (Photo: Julien Douvier).
The author of these unusual live photos inspires everything that can be seen. Music a compulsory part for the photographer, which, he says, very often affects the choice of the plot for his filming the live images. (Photo: Julien Douvier).
