Cinemagraphs: Animated GIFS As Art Fun Pic — By Dave on 2011/04/16 4:56 PM Jamie Beck, a fashion photographer from New York, created a series of animated GIFs she calls cinemagraphs and posted them on her ‘From Me To You‘ Tumblr. Since couple of them feature Canadian supermodel Coco Rocha, they’ve gained quite a bit of media exposure recently. According to Rocha, cinemagraphs are “more than a photo, but not quite a video.” The concept itself is not all that unique, but I love the feel and the whole atmosphere of these GIFs, so I hope you will love them too.

Joseph Ducreux / Archaic Rap About Joseph Ducreux (June 26, 1735 – July 24, 1802) is an eighteenth century French artist known for his unorthodox style of portrait paintings.

Reminiscent of Bayeux Tapestry image macros, this highly verbose joke provides a satisfying challenge of “decoding” the corrupted lyrics back into to the original verses. Origin Portrait de l’artiste sous les traits d’un moqueur (English: Self-portrait of the artist in the guise of a mockingbird), which depicts Ducreux grinning smugly while pointing his finger towards the viewer, was completed circa 1793.
