Word on the streets of New York is that there is a very talented new photographer named Jamie Beck. She and her fiancée create these unique images she calls “cinemagraphs” – more than a photo, but not quite a video. Whatever they are, they’re badass. Jamie Beck said: “There’s something magical about a still photograph – a captured moment in time – that can simultaneously exist outside the fraction of a second the shutter captures.” [Jamie Beck via Fast CoDesign via From Me-To You]
